A Barn owl comes down a Portnahaven chimney

This Barn owl was an uninvited guest in a Portnahaven dining room last week where it spent some time before finally deciding to leave.  Like an unidentified member of the crow family that had also intruded a few days previously, it had come down the chimney. 
At least the owl had the decency to behave itself.  The crow felt the need to smash the place up, breaking a couple of rather nice decanters and knocking a number of bottles to the floor before eventually being ejected by the police.  In the middle of the night too.  No manners...
Thanks to Simon and Kat for the photo....

  1. That's one way of getting up close to a barn owl! Nevertheless, I hope it is able to get back to business as usual in no time. Thanks for the report! Lorna
