"The wailing owl Screams solitary to the mournful moon."

Before our recent visit to the Sea life centre in Birmingham the boys spotted a big colourful owl outside that dominated the remainder of our afternoon. After we had had our fill of fish and finished adoring the seahorses we set about our mission to spot as many of the owls from the Big Hoot as we could. I love how lots of local artists and business' have come together and created a colourful trail spanning over a huge area of Birmingham.

We had around an hour and a half before leaving to pick Mrs M up from work so we only had the chance to get to the owls situated around the town centre, the great thing is though, they are everywhere and the boys were so excited going from owl to owl. I wont hoot on too much (haha) as I think these beautifully decorated statues speak for themselves. Here's the ones we managed to find...

Our favourite was definitely the phone box and although we didn't get to see them all the unexpected adventure really made our afternoon. I was a little gutted when I noticed on my friend Aidens fb page that there was a Captain America one hiding but the owls are about until the 27th of September so maybe me and Opeie can get out and find the rest before they are auctioned off to raise much needed money for Birmingham children's hospital.
