We have now checked 10 of our regular Barn Owl sites where the boxes are fitted with cameras:
- Four of these already have complete clutches of 6,6,6 & 7 eggs, with first-egg-dates of 24th, 28th, 29th and 29th March.
- A fifth female is still laying, with the first egg laid on 4th April.
- Two further boxes have Barn Owls which have not yet started laying.
- Two other boxes contain stock dove nests and the last site is as yet unoccupied.
So the signs are for an early and productive nesting season in South Buckinghamshire.
