A Near Miss

Early this morning I was heading south on the A346. Passing Ogbourne St George a Barn Owl was perched on the crash barrier on the left of the carriageway. Quite often they don’t move but this one decided it was a good time to fly up. As there were trees on the verge side it flew out into the road ahead of me. Fortunately there wasn’t any traffic coming the other way so I was able to move over and just managed to miss it. As I saw on the M4 last week they often end up as roadkill so I was very glad I was able to miss it. Pheasants are fair game but certainly not Owls.
