Tawny Owl season 2016

With the Tawny Owl breeeding season coming to an end for this year, we have found five Tawny Owl nests in our boxes. This is the highest number of any of our three years so far.

Two of these nests contained chicks old enough to be ringed, but the others had failed at either the egg or chick stage.

Hopefully next year will be a more productive year for them.

As usual we also found several pairs of Jackdaws and Stock Doves nesting in the boxes, as well as the  inevitable squirrels.
