    I mentioned Muncaster Castle (near Ravenglass) in another thread. They have a superb collection of owls, but they are difficult to photograph because of the way they are caged behind mesh of only about 5cm pitch. A compact with a long zoom, using the lcd for composing might help.

    However they do fly a few birds each afternoon in an area where there is little obstruction and a reasonable background. On the day I was there, they included this Eagle Owl in the display.

    Thanks for the great photo.
    We are compilling a list of places and this is a must see,
    I think we are going there via the Hard Knott Pass.

    Thank you all for your location suggestions,

    This year i thought there would be many more tourists on the trail of Beatrix Potter.
    But I for one will be on the trail of Basil Brush,

    I was in Hawkhead ,many years ago,there is a little cottage down a little ginnle ,I forget the name of the place ,but W.Wordsworth stayed at the cottage as a child and went to the local school.

    Now.the place is a tourist attraction because of this.
    Now I sleep in the buff,PJ,s arn,t me ,so ,it,s 7 am ,

    I,m first up, go to draw the curtains on the window,that overlooks the little lane at the front.

    Open said curtains,and bloody hell!!!do you realise how early Japanese tourist get up.

    Try a walk up Aira Beck from Aira Force (Not an easy subject,try details) to High Force (No not the other one!). Lots of small but beutiful rapids and falls, and High force is,IMHO, better than Aira itself.
