Long journey North

I found this first year male bird at Kingsley today. He was ringed as a chick last Summer at Broomhall (approx. 30km to the south) and, given that most Barn Owls are quite sedantry, his movement is quite significant.
He is breeding with an older female, who has seeemingly lost her partner from 2011, in a regular nest site.
