Every evening lately we have heard the loud call of the Tawny Owl somewhere in Farigaig Forest between our house and Aspenwood Cottage above us. The other night we think it landed on our roof as it was that loud. Owls are always a good sign of a thriving ecosystem, similar to having Sparrowhawks in the vicinity, as they prey on the smaller creatures which therefore must be in the area. It shows that there is enough food to go round.
uests staying in the cottage in the past took this photo of the tawny owl in a tree in front of Aspenwood Cottage and kindly allowed me to use it to create a canvas print which we put up in the en-suite bathroom of the cottage.
