Seen on a walk: A Parliament of Owls
I’ve taken a bit of a liberty with this post, in honour of it being the 29th of February, a leap day. In the same spirit of quirkiness, here are a couple of owls, spotted in Brighton and Hove. Apparently, the literary collective noun for a group of owls is a parliament. Two probably doesn’t equal “a collective,” and they weren’t together in reality, but they are on the blog - so here they are. The stencilled owl is in a prominent location in Brighton, and a lot more permanent than the chalk owl. Unlikely to be referring to Monty Python’s Owl Stretching Time, perhaps these are secret messages to Harry Potter enthusiasts?
