On 22nd October a reader was having lunch in their house in Common Road, Kensworth when suddenly an owl flew from one corner of the lounge to the opposite corner. It was a medium sized tawny owl with what seemed to be a big wing span. It was encouraged to go to the patio door and it flew off. The reader has no idea how it got into the lounge but possibly down the chimney. Please see image.
