Last Friday only 2 of our group of regulars were able to walk at Radnor Park. We saw great things!
We delighted in the beauty of this stream and the icicles that draped a sheer and sparkling curtain along the fallen branch.The busyness of the stream provided a lovely contrast to the smooth lake with its mirror-like reflection of the sunrise.
We chatted and were keeping a good pace when suddenly my friend stopped, her eyes widening with what seemed to be alarm. I turned around to look ; she had spotted an owl perched on a branch, out in the open and so close. We held our breath as we turned on our cameras, expecting the owl to fly off at any second. We rarely spot owls, and when we do, they are usually reclusive and standoffish.
