Checking Bisham Woods Tawny Owl boxes

Today was spent checking the dozen or so tawny owl boxes in Bisham Woods. Inevitably there were several squirrel dreys and old stock dove nests to be cleared out. More unusual though was to find an unhatched mandarin duck egg in one box.
Encouragingly two of the boxes held roosting tawny owls, which bodes well for next year's nesting season.
