Tawny Owlets were raised for the first time in the Owl Box on the Walnut Tree, every year over the last half a dozen since it's been there it's been occupied by Jackdaws. It was a surprise to find out 17 days ago that two almost fledged youngsters, were in there. After a week they were both out of the nest and perching high up hidden by the foliage. I watched them over the next few evenings being fed by both parents.
Generally, the light was insufficient to get a decent record shot, but I did manage to get this one of the oldest.
