Eagle Owl in Withybrook
There's been an unexpected visitor to the village over the last few weeks. A female eagle owl had escaped from her falconer in Coventry and taken up residence in the village, having first tried her luck in Ansty. After a few days she moved on elswhere for about a week and then returned.
Finally she was spotted on Sunday morning, perched on a window sill of the church just before the morning service.
After a quick phone called to her owner she was soon safely back in his arms.
