Horton

Posted in Garden Diary by Jane Griffiths on the October 13th, 2008

Earlier this year a giant spotted eagle owl moved into the huge gum tree across the road from our garden. Every night, around dusk, he wakes up and silently swoops from his gum tree onto our chimney. His silhouette looks like a cat and the first time Tilu saw him, I’m sure she thought one of her cats had climbed onto the roof. We have called him Horton and every 30 seconds or so we hear his hooooh hoo echoing into the night. We haven’t seen a rat in months. I am organising a nesting box for him so hopefully next year we have Mrs Horton and their babies.
