Swallows take on Barn owl and win!

While guests were enjoying an evening soak in the hot tub this week, they watched as a Barn owl flew overhead and was then chased up the valley by 4 swallows. The swallows had swooped out of our farm buildings to chase the owl away from their nests! In the Autumn, we have counted over 100 swallows milling over the wood behind our house, before they migrate…am sure the barn owl is counting down the days to be rid of them but they are a lovely sight!
