Lost owls of city square - the original lights in City Square had litle owls on top. Wonder where and when they went?

Looking at Leodis I'd say in the 60's when the square was remodelled.

There seem to be a few perched in the various nooks and crannies of the old Post Office building.

This photo (taken today April 29 2012) shows a view if you turn to look back after entering into the Leeds Central Reference Library from Calverley Street. The main feature is a shield-like object but just below it is a small carving of an owl which I suspect may not be that well-known (it does not seem to be mentioned in the Leeds Owl Trail). I will post a closer view of the shield-like object and the owl in my next post.

A rainbow is a ribbon that Nature puts on when she washes her hair.

This is the closer view photo. I like this small carving of a Leeds owl.

Jim they are plastic Eagle Owls taht are supposed to scare off pigeons.

I say supposed as Eagle Owls,as a wild spcies,have ben extinct in the UK for many hundreds of years,and therefore the pigeons wont be scared of em.
