To have an owl in there would've been a big mistake, Brian.
Owls aren't classed as birds of prey, mainly because they don't have a crop, and most of them are ambush hunters :thumbs:

No chance of getting them wrong but I'm a bit surprised they didn't end up saying "1st f*****g class", "2nd f*****g class"... Got a mouth on her that woman :laughs:
