Arriving at dusk in Score Valley we pulled up in the car and were first welcomed by the hooting of owls from the nearby woods, creating just the right atmosphere for our stay. On entering the hotel there was nobody to be seen, I just couldnt resist calling out – ‘Is there anybody there?’
No answer. So instead we rang the bell and were quickly made welcome by Roger, the proprietor, who showed us to our first floor room and left us to unpack and discuss the plans for the weekend.
The owls continued and as we prepared the camera for an overnight vigil, there was some very strange scratching and tapping noises at the window…by the time we had equipment ready to record, it had stopped…
The camera was set to nightvision mode and left to take a photograph every minute through the night.
