More breeding pairs.

Three more breeding pairs were found today. One of them was located at a new breeding site near to Weaverham; the female (above) enjoying the late evening sunshine.

The male bird was first ringed as a chick in 2009 and he was one of the first birds handled by my daughter, Amy. It is amazing to look at his transformation from tiny owlet into the adult bird below.
