When late adolescence arrives.....
Digressing, the fox cubs that visit our garden are of very varying ages, and the older ones are now strutting their stuff. We heard a fracas a few nights back, but no idea what, who or why, then, a nighttime capture revealed all, two adolescent foxes strutting their territorial rights.
So it'll be interesting to see if that happens with the owlets, though i guess that would happen outside the nestbox, so not in range of the camera.

There was a prey delivery a short time ago, youngest got it
See they are all standing up now & looking expectantly for prey to be delivered ... second youngest just had a vole but was taken by second eldest, was so busy watching that I forgot to press record! https://youtu.be/B436UGtJVV8
Another rodent at 08.41, or maybe the same one as before?
Poor little devils, they are so hot!
