Saturday is market day in Warwick and the various stalls were doing a good trade in the town square.
One stall was unlike the rest - beautiful birds of prey, rescued from captive breeding but unfortunately unable to be released into the wild. The Rescue Centre was raising money to support the programme.
In addition to the owls there was a young kestrel who had spread his wings - possibly to keep cool?
It gave him a slightly doleful appearance and it was striking to see how large his wings were in relation to his body.
All of the birds were very handsome and with the exception of a Barn Owl who was fast asleep, very alert!
One shop had some rather gruesome Halloween masks..
Warwick still has its East and West gates and by each there is a Victorian postbox.
The 1856 design of this one at Eastgate is unusual - very slender and with a vertical slot for (quite small) letters. The Victorian postbox in Laura Place in Bath has a 'normal', horizontal slot I am sure. Perhaps it is a later version.
