The owl files – Chapter 3: What on earth!!!!

What on earth!!!!

When I checked on the nest this morning (after a break of five days), I was interested, or is that concerned? to see if the female was still trying to incubate the second clutch. She was still obviously sitting, but I could not see any indication that any of the eggs had hatched. Phew!!!

I’ve just gone back up the ladder again – no female, but there were now five eggs in the nest!!! This is totally crazy!!
