Eagle Owl in the Woods
England

The Queenswood Country Park and Arboretum covers a large area compromising of a 67 acre arboretum containing over 1,200 rare and exotic trees from all over the world and a 103 acre area of semi-natural ancient woodland. The planting of the trees started in 1953 to mark the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Now there is a collection of Californian Redwood trees that can grow to over 100 meters tall and a collection of Japanese Maples that present a fantastic show of colour through the autumn.

The park has recently had installed a sculpture trail depicting animals you might find in each sort of woodland. Each piece was carved by a local sculpture from a variety of locally sourced wood. Here you can see an Eagle Owl watching for it's next meal, created by Steve Elsby. A beautiful piece of art to find just sitting in between the trees.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
