Fake owls

Today whilst I was out I thought I saw an owl. The owl appeared to be sat on top of some high voltage wires in the railway substation. I took a couple of photos with my phone, a train came past, and the owl hardly moved. I got a bit suspicious so I went on Google Street View to see what the owl was actually sitting on and this is what I saw:

The owl is of course a complete fake. It’s there to deter other birds from sitting on the wires in the substation which could lead to them shorting out the power.

In my defence it was getting quite dark so I couldn’t see the fake owl very clearly. Next time I’ll just look out for the foxes, they’re definitely real.
