The Wise Old Owl returns to its territory … eyes bright, claws sharp

The old owl is rather like Hedwig in the Harry Potter books: always faithful to its master  – in this case East Devon Watch readers – and has returned home to its roost and ready to keep its beady eye on its home territory of East Devon again.

And so much going on!  Beach huts for rich people, rumblings in Chardstock and Dunkeswell, Budleigh Salterton and Feniton not to mention Cranbrook –  and general dismay that things are already going very, very pear-shaped at Knowle.

Much to come in the next few months … and you, dear readers, can keep in touch by mailing the roost at

discretion assured.
