Tawny Owl and Buzzards

Sunday, June 20th 2010

When the sun made its re-appearance this morning along with it came this delicate Ragged-Robin. Although it is very close to the walkway it can easily be missed! Brooklime can also be seen blooming in large clusters on the grassland area of the moorland trail.

Yesterday a Buzzard nest was discovered nearby. Our team of ringers recorded the details of these slightly dishevelled - looking chicks and so far have ringed 22 in all.

The ringers were also pleased to discover an adult female Tawny Owl early this morning. She was mist netted along with over a hundred juveniles of more than 20 species all recently fledged on the reserve. Among them was a Goldcrest (weighing in at 5.1 grams), Treecreepers and several Nuthatches - over two hundred birds in all. Two pairs of Tufted Ducks have ducklings!
