Well, its Twenty Thirteen, and it will no doubt be a momentous year for all of us.

I know this because of an omen.  As the first day of the year drew to a close, we were visited by a rarely seen (round my neck of the woods anyway) friend: The Tawny Owl.

Artist's impression

Perched on the roof of the house at the back of ours, he/she was cooing for a while to get our attention, and then after quite a while, swooped off.  It was a full moon too.

There you have it, proof, if any were required, that we are still busy finishing our album. Happy New Year.

    I guess you now have to name your next album after him/her.
    Alternatively, a pic on the cover should be fine as well.
    Happy New Year

    thanks Nick! That’s the cover right there. I may even do them all by hand.

    Dude, that’s clearly not a real owl.

    At this point you should listen to one of the Barn Owl’s albums while staying there in the woods… I suggest Ancestral Star.
