I took a four-day weekend, starting Thursday, so I could go owl-spotting in Birmingham.

I've seen these spot-the-arty-thing in the news before, in other cities, so I was really pleased to have one close enough to visit. The Big Hoot is a fundraiser for Birmingham Children's Hospital, and features lots of owls (and owlets) around Birmingham City Centre and other notable places in the suburbs such as the airport, Cadbury World, etc. I stuck to the city centre and got a ton of photos, and I also managed to take lots of other general touristy photos.

Dr Whoot (Snow Hill Station) was my favourite

You can see the full set of my photos here. I have a work thing in Birmingham next week so hopefully I can get a few more photos, I didn't see the one that's in the Bullring because I only went in to get my JellyBellys from Selfridges.
