Owl be watch­ing you

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

HE ‘100 years ago’ let­ter show­ing your coun­try­woman hand-rear­ing birds in the gar­den rings as true to­day as then (Au­gust 31).

For the past cou­ple of years, I have been helping rear-on or­phaned and in­jured owls, watch­ing them flour­ish and fly. One such tawny has be­come a res­i­dent, wild and free, but I some­how sus­pect they all still watch over me. I cer­tainly hear them at night. Here I am en­cour­ag­ing him to feed (above). His­tory re­peats it­self in the depths of Suf­folk and all over the coun­try, I sus­pect. Heather M. Tan­ner, Suf­folk


The writer of the let­ter of the week will win a bot­tle of Pol Roger Brut Réserve Cham­pagne
