A Barking owl visits, Home Valley Station

Hannah’s view:
Last night during dinner we saw a large bird fly into a tree. It turned out to be a barking owl! It was amazing. We attracted a lot of attention. It was quite weird to be standing there surrounded by people right next to a bathroom. The owl was reddish-brown with a brown striped chest and the underside of its tail. It has white flecked wings. Its head is rather flat with yellow eyes.

Hannah’s imaginative narrative!
It was late in the evening and I, a barking owl, am out hunting for large insects and small reptiles and mammals. Just outside the horse stables there is a mouse. I swoop down feeling the wind roaring in my ears as I dive towards ground. Just as I stretched out my talons to grasp the mouse a horse stamped its foot and whinnied. The mouse ran into a hole in the wall and I decided to hunt near the strange lighty things where insects fly around trying to get closer to the lights. As I sit on a tree a human saw me and came with a big black thing and pointed it at me while others shone lights at me which hurt my eyes. I was confused and I sat there for a while trying to figure out what was happening. Then finally I flew away with an empty stomach.
