Requiem For An Owl
 Mats Andersson/2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Every day in early spring, Mats Andersson walked in the forest near his home in Bashult, southern Sweden, enjoying the company of a pair of Eurasian pygmy owls – until the night he found one of them lying dead on the forest floor.

He captured the melancholy of the moment, framing the solitary owl within the bare branches, lit by the first light of dawn.

Thousands of minors are now fleeing their homelands without any family to protect them on their journey. According to Save the Children, the youngest child to arrive on his own in Sicily was aged just nine.

No Going Back

The house looks like some sad, old bag lady with a purloined tiara but at least we've done something about our energy use. I'm not entirely sure when we offset the energy used to manufacture the panels, etc. but at the moment we're adding renewal energy to the electrical grid.
