This adult tawny owl flew into the window of a neighbour's house early this morning and was only discovered about 2.30 in the afternoon. Clearly unable to fly, it was taken to a raptor and owl centre at St. Ives. More news as we get it.

We arrived at Launde Abbey, former lair of Wolf Hall villain Thomas Cromwell, for the Nature Photographers' Portfolio biennial meeting. We stayed in the Stable Block (second and third down) and not in the silent retreat 'Shepherds' Huts' named Hilda and Cuthbert. The food was excellent.

The MGCC races took place on only one day, but it was a warm day (for Snetterton Heath, anyway).
I used the 14mm and 35mm lenses around the paddock. The last race started at ten past six and had to finish by six thirty to comply with noise restrictions. At six fifteen, when I took the picture, it was a lovely sunset.

This poem on a wall in a disused WW2 bunker at Dovercourt seemed a bit classy for graffito, so I checked it out, and it's part of a poem called In the Summer by Syrian poet Nizar Qabbani (1923 - 1998). It reads: Had I told the sea what I felt for you, it would have left its shores, its shells, its fish, and followed me.
