Jeni Bell’s Wild Britain

The continued adventures Of Jeni , Bill and Millie……..

There is one creature that completely embodies Autumn for me. It’s the soundtrack to those fresh, crisp nights when the first stars appear early in the inky sky and your breath streams out in front of you like ribbons. You could even go so far as to say that is even the colour of Autumn; caramel swirls, and mottled browns mix together like the leaves on a forest floor, thick and heavy after dropping clean from outstretched branches. It’s actually quite tricky to describe the colours of this creature without giving away its name. The tawny owl.

Have you ever had the chance to look at a tawny owl up close? Perhaps you’ve found a dropped feather and have witnessed the many colours that build up to give the owl it’s autumn disguise. You might even have been lucky enough to catch sight of a tawny owl at roost, tucked in close to the trunk of a tree, almost invisible to all that pass by. Chances are you probably haven’t seen too many tawny owls at roost because those autumn colours help to camouflage this avian marvel, painting it right into the environment.
