The marshlands have been farmed for hundreds of years but much of the area has never, ever been ploughed. And today, now that the marshes are managed by the Essex Wildlife Trust, they are farmed with conservation in mind. Grazing is the traditional way of managing lowland grassland habitats and Essex Wildlife Trust uses a ‘flying flock’ of North Ronaldsay and Shetland sheep.

Owl

Burrowing owl Athene cunicularia Captive short-eared owl chick at about 18 days old Owls possess large, forward-facing eyes and ear-holes, a hawk -like beak , a flat face, and usually a conspicuous circle of feathers, a facial disc , around each eye. The feathers making up this disc can be adjusted to sharply focus sounds from varying distances onto the owls’ asymmetrically placed ear cavities. Most birds of prey have eyes on the sides of their heads, but the stereoscopic nature of the owl’s forward-facing eyes permits the greater sense of depth perception necessary for low-light hunting.

Although owls have binocular vision , their large eyes are fixed in their sockets—as are those of most other birds—so they must turn their entire heads to change views. As owls are farsighted, they are unable to clearly see anything within a few centimeters of their eyes. Caught prey can be felt by owls with the use of filoplumes —hairlike feathers on the beak and feet that act as “feelers”.

As owls are farsighted, they are unable to clearly see anything within a few centimeters of their eyes. Caught prey can be felt by owls with the use of filoplumes —hairlike feathers on the beak and feet that act as “feelers”. Their far vision, particularly in low light, is exceptionally good. Owls have 14 neck vertebrae compared to seven in humans, which makes their necks more flexible.

They also have adaptations to their circulatory systems, permitting rotation without cutting off blood to the brain: Other anastomoses between the carotid and vertebral arteries support this effect. As noted above, their facial discs help owls to funnel the sound of prey to their ears. In many species, these discs are placed asymmetrically, for better directional location. Owl plumage is generally cryptic , although several species have facial and head markings, including face masks, ear tufts , and brightly coloured irises.

Persistence is grossly overrated in dating and romance. Dear Captain, I am a man and I have a problem: I met a friend-of-a-friend a few times before, and we had flirted with each other, so I was feeling confident about our connection. Our group went to a party a while back, and I ended up asking to kiss her when we alone at one point.

I backed off physically, but I pressed the point: We parted without incident, but met back up at the end of the party the group was riding back together. For some reason, I tried to flirt some more, and I just ended up creeping her out. I saw a woman on a regular basis at an activity. I liked her, and told her so one day. We ended up having a good conversation about everything else , but my declaration was left hanging.

Owls are one of the few birds that have been found in prehistoric cave paintings. In ancient Greece, owls were often seen as a symbol of good fortune. The idea of the ‘wise old owl’ may have come into being from the association of the Little Owl with the Greek goddess of wisdom, Athene. In contrast, the Romans saw owls as omens of impending disaster.

While the Greeks believed that sight of an owl predicted victory for their armies, the Romans saw it as a sign of defeat. Beliefs on owls varied between ancient American Indian tribes. Some tribes even saw the owls as earthly incarnations of their gods, the Hopis believed the Burrowing Owl to be their god of the dead. Some tribes referred to death as “crossing the owls bridge”. Some people believed that owls were particular bad to children, in Malaya it was believed that owls ate new-born babies, the Swahili believed that owls brought sickness to children, in Arabia it was believed that owls were evil spirits that carried children off in the night.

Some people believed that owls had magic powers, in Arabia it was thought that each female Owl laid two eggs – one with the power to make hair fall out, the other with the power to restore it.
