Hello Tony. A dozen or so Marylebone Birdwatching Society members were in the Park this morning for our annual pre-Christmas bird walk. We were lucky enough to spot the Tawny owl. Thanks for the lovely photos, we will all have souvenirs now!

Hi Steve.

The owl has chosen a very good roost site, one where we can view him but where he won't be disturbed by over enthusistic photographers.
