Even though we are now at mid-March the polar vortex, as the weather forecasters are fond of calling this weather, is stubbornly hanging on. So it makes one wonder if the Snowy Owls are still here. Today we took a look at one of the areas where we had spotted one previously. It was almost dusk which seems to have been the time we have most often seen the owls. Sure enough there it was sitting in the treetop near a farm just outside Gadshill. We wondered if the people who live there are aware of the Snowy that moved in with them for the winter!
