It has been a good year for Barn Owls in north Wiltshire, because it has been a good year for Short-tailed Voles and Field Mice. There is little intensive agriculture here and plenty of hay meadows.

This one was on the verge of fledging
This one is at the fluffy stage and will probably fledge at the end of September:
