Even More Owls

Wednesday, July 15th 2020

A second Tawny owlet was found in the same place as the one on Saturday. It was also ringed and then returned to its perch back in the woodland! If you look carefully you can see the BTO ring on its right leg. These are the latest Tawny Owl chicks that the bird ringers have ever known.

Just when we thought that we had ringed the last young owl of the year another one arrived! This time a slightly older bird that was on the road to recovery after having been rescued. It will be released back into the wild over the next few days where it will hopefully learn to fend for itself.
