The owl house survives
At the foot of our road is an abandoned old factory / warehouse / mill or something or other, which is in spectacular ruins. This is where our local pair of owls live. They often swoop down our street during the summer months.
The building next door has been torn down, and a new supermarket is rapidly going up in its place. Fortunately, the 'owl house' itself does not seem to have been disturbed by the building work. Whether the owls will still fancy living in the neighbourhood remains to be seen.
It looks very sparse in the winter, and the contrast with a picture from the summer tells you everything you need to know about how the island changes through the seasons. It looks different, but still intriguing and often spectacular.
