Barn Owls and Kestrels

We are still checking Barn Owls boxes, about half being occupied so far,the rest mostly having Stock Doves in.They vary from having large to small chicks and some even still on eggs. Most seem to be doing quite well with still more to check . The largest brood being 4 so far, the rest 2's and 3's.

Looking fit and healthy.

As always ringing Barn Owls is a great PR exercise. All the farmers/land owners are very proud of 'their
Owls and are very keen to come and see them as well as finding out whats going on around them.

The Kestrel nest was revisited from a few weeks ago and resulted in 3 young being ringed with one egg unhatched.
