Tawny Frogmouth on nest. Not a true owl, but a member of the Nightjar family of birds. A difficult one to spot as they blend in with the bark of the tree. Unfortunately, we found the body of a dead chick, on the ground below this nest. Hopefully, they have a second chick under this adult.

By the way, Terje is a Norwegian name and I believe Voldemort was Swedish (?) and you should be aware that a Swede impersonating a Norwegian (and vice versa), is a crime beyond treason! Like we say; You can always tell a Swede ... but you can´t tell him much!
Now it is time for another single malt. A 30 year old Isle of Jura should do. Have a great weekend!
