Tawny Owl chick ringed

Last Thursday we returned to ring the tawny owl brood found earlier in the month.

Unfortunately, as is often the case when food is short, only one of the two chicks has survived this far.

The growth over the three weeks since we last saw this chick at just a few days old is remarkable - as seen in these two photos.

Within another week or so this chick will be ready to leave the nest.
