2022 Nesting Season underway

At two of our Barn Owl boxes with live-cameras, the first eggs were laid on 6th April and 14th April, fairly typical dates.

Edit: Subsequently a nest was found where egg-laying had commenced on 16th March.

Elsewhere, the Marlow Peregrines began egg-laying on 25th March, 8 days earlier than last year. The clutch was completed with 4 eggs all of which hatched and fledged successfully.
