Leaving an impression

A couple in Kendal, Cumbia, came home one night over the weekend to find an unusual addition to their home décor. Whilst they had been out an unfortunate Tawny Owl had flown into the window with such force that it left an imprint behind of its visit. (Pictured below)  Clearly the owl survived the impact, since there was no sign of it in the vicinity.

I have to confess, though, there is a little bit of me which wonders whether its ego survived the impact. Can you imagine having to tell your fellow owls that you were concentrating so little on the way home that you flew into a window? In fact, not only that you flew into a window, but that you did it with enough force to leave a permanent reminder of your navigational folly?

Who’d do a thing like that?
