Withybrook Owl 1There'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.
