First Tawny Owl egg of 2018

Tawny Owl(f) with first egg

The snow and cold of early March did not delay this female Tawny Owl from egg-laying for very long, as the first egg appeared on 16th March.

But with more snow arriving on easterly winds on 17th March, she probably wishes she'd waited a few more days.

The clutch was completed with a second egg.
The first chick hatched 16th April.
