Maiden voyage

We’ve been serenaded by the calls of two baby owls at night, whose home is in a nearby pine tree. One of them took fright when the tractor was bailing up the hay on our land, and took its maiden voyage from the pine tree straight into a large cactus. Still feeling too close to all the commotion it flew off again but went straight into the side of our house. Luckily no damage was done and Andy carried it to an olive tree a safe distance away from both the tractor and our cats! Now we can hear both their calls again, so we’re relieved it managed to get back to the family home.
