As Jen and I drove down the hill towards the house this evening, there it was again: the local barn owl tacking back and forth on wide wings above the long grass in the Farm’s front field.

We first saw the owl just over a year ago. It has continued to thrill us with its occasional appearances, and now appears to have taken up residence on the Farm. A truly magical creature. I hope it continues to stick around.
