Barn Owl (1) stood in the middle of the lane at 23.00 hrs. Luckily a narrow lane so driving slowly and we stopped and waited for it to fly. It seemed at least a minute or two before the bird flew off. We thought we might have dazzled it so we turned off the headlights and it still just sat there. No doubt over ID
