Mixed morning

Following the recent bad weather I resumed checking my nestboxes this morning and what a contrast there was as I went round. Firstly I found these well-developed pair of youngsters, one male and one female, that are not too far off from taking their first flights.

About half a mile away I then discovered this new first-year female sat incubating a small clutch of eggs.

Finally, on the adjacent farm I came across another clutch of dead Barn Owl chicks. The three birds had all starved to death during the recent bad weather.
