The sixth and last of my bunch of pictures of owls. There are just two different birds in the series, and each picture was taken in and around Lymington during 9th December, which was a dull, damp day.
This is a Snowy Owl from the Owl Sanctuary in Ringwood, and was making quite a lot of noise.
Owls are often brought into Lymington, to get them used to people and also I expect for publicity.~ Gallaxy ~
has some lovely pictures of other birds from the Sanctuary, taken while she was there.
I thought the picture had a warm Christmassy background.
Saturday is the day we do most of our household shopping, all through the year and today will be no different. I wonder how many just go on a Christmas shopping spree without questioning why we give gifts.
I know a lot of people celebrate Yule, or other religious feasts, at this time of year but thought it would be OK to mention a campaign here in the UK to "Make Christmas His Story" <--

Whatever it is that you celebrate on 25th December I hope you share your day with those you love..
