Flying High

It's taken me all day to get to write this short blog today, what with the distraction of work, tweeting and lunch meetings......... 

I had a nice drive in to work today and shared some of it with Mr Barn Owl.

Barn Owl at Butterfly Park Long Sutton
He appeared from out of the fog which was hovering just above the black peat of a Fenland field and even though I had another car up my rear end I decided to drive along with him a short while - what an exhilarating experience.

Then to top it off about half an hour later I had another co-pilot a beautiful solitary swan flying over the 16 foot drain in Manea, Cambridgeshire. 

I am amazed at the speed both birds were flying at and made me apprieciate and feel privillaged that I am be able to have these experiences every now and again first thing in the morning!
