Snowy owl

22 July 2012
Hang on. What's that in the cleit?  First glimpse of the snowy owl

The snowy owl is back on island!

I've seen the bird every day for the last week. Sometimes near or on cleits, other times out in the open and occasionally in flight.

I wonder just how long it will stay with us?
