Owl Update

Saturday, May 16th 2020

This year seems to have been a good one for Tawny Owls. Boxes that have been visited by the bird ringers have had healthy well fed chicks. Most of these will be fledging in a few weeks time.

An interesting find was a Little Owl nest with eggs, the first one that the team have come across in the last five years. 

The enduring harsh winter weather five years ago took it's toll on this species and their numbers dwindled significantly. Here's hoping that this is the start of a noticeable recovery.
