This young tawny owl was in Bankhouse Wood recently.
Any human night-owls who fancy a DAWN CHORUS event can join the Scientific Society for a listen out in Cragg Vale on Sunday at dawn. This one's unsuitable for dogs.
Meet quietly at the public car park at Russell Dean's Mytholmroyd Showroom. 2.45am for a 3.00am start. SE014260.
From there we will share lifts if required and park quietly at Dauber Bridge, a little way up Cragg Road. We'll walk up the track towards Broadhead Clough, the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Reserve. We'll probably stop before the reserve and sit and wait for dawn, so you might want to bring a waterproof something to sit on or a camp chair.
If its mild and calm with light cloud or the sun coming up, we will be in for a treat! Then we'll go home at about 4.30 - 5.00 for a lovely Sunday lie-in.
