Moving Around



A check of one of our regular breeding sites in Lach Dennis on Saturday added to the recent disappointments of not finding breeding birds. It was, however, good to find this first year male roosting in the box. He had been ringed in Northeast Cheshire last June, travelling just over 10 miles to set up his new home.
 
The breeding pair that had been on territory for the past few years were nowhere to be found and at this moment in time the "new" owl does not have a partner.
