Doing our good citizen bit...

I am off to do jury service. A chore I could do without but, if we are to ensure that some small part of our justice system isn't run by lawyers for the benefit of lawyers, it is important that we play our part as citizens. I have no idea what to expect but I am still reminded that the jury - trial by jury - is an essential link to community and to the idea that justice should be delivered by that community not by a mighty state.

In the meantime I leave you with a barn owl I met at the Cottingley Fun Day - not your typical funday denizen to be sure but he* seemed pretty chipper about being there!

*Or possibly she - not expert enough to tell the difference in owls!
