It seems to be a bumper year for barn owls! After the two nests on the reserve fledged at least 7 young between them (3+4) earlier this year, the pair in the large triangular box has nested again. At least, I assume it is the same pair; we can't really be sure. Anyway, a couple of days ago one of the regular birders alerted me to the fact that he had seen two chicks, and he was right. What I assume is the oldest, large but still fluffy, was sunning itself in the entrance on Monday morning. Amazing!
What fabulous news ... any plans to set up nestbox cam?
