Tawny Owls

I,ve been watching a Tawny Owl nest over the past couple of weeks ,which is in a crack in one of the main limbs of a large tree . Its on a bank and through the binoculars you can see into the nest , when the parent was on eggs she could bee seen in the hollow limb but blended in really well , dozing in the warm sun.

The young are visible now with the parents leaving them alone during the day, within a few days they will leave the nest and clamber into nearby conifers.

It must be a good year for Tawny Owls as The nest box i put up a year or two ago also has a nesting Tawny in it .
