The owl files – Chapter 2: All present . . . and correct!

05 October 2021

All present . . . and correct!

After getting back late yesterday from my tour (more on that later), I was out early this morning looking for the owls.

I’d heard the male calling from behind the Centre so I headed in that direction .  .  . and found the whole family perched in the Elm next to the air quality monitoring station. All five birds are looking well and the chicks are obviously able to fly fairly strongly already. I am really sorry that I missed this stage this season, but the fantastic tour with 6 VENT clients more than made up for it.
