Owl Boxes

Friday, May 2nd 2014

Some of the ringing team spent time this afternoon checking the large nestboxes here on the reserve. One adult Tawny Owl was retrapped, having first been ringed as an adult nesting bird in 2010. She has two chicks this year, though these were only about one week old and too small to ring.

Two large Tawny Owl chicks were found in a box near the lake, these were much larger with their primary wing feathers already well developed.

Jackdaw nests were also found in a few of the nestboxes. The ringing team are very busy at the moment checking the boxes across the training area and the first of the CES sessions is this Sunday! Thank you to everyone for your help today!
