Some Good News

News reached me at the weekend that one of the owlets that I had ringed at Lach Dennis last June had been caught by the ringing team at Woolston Eyes.
 
 
This male had travelled over 17km north, quite a long way in Barn Owl terms, and represented a rare find for the team at Woolston. Bizarrely though he did not have the good grace to use one of the Barn Owl boxes that I had provided; preferring to skulk inside a Tawny Owl box instead!
