    I managed these this afternoon at LOrton, lots preening each other and trying to wingercise, but that Box is really too smal for owls.Doh!!

    It can get very warm in the owl tower and it doesn't help if you're wearing a fur coat!
    The calm, dry nights have meant good hunting conditions and both adults are now feeding our owlets.
    They need around four small rodents each.
    Two adults and four growing chicks means 20+ mice and voles have to be caught every night!
