Moving On



This pair of Barn Owls were found in one of our nest boxes at Goostrey on Friday evening. The male bird, now in his second year, has found a new, younger mate following the demise of his previous partner. Proving that Barn Owls have no sentimental feelings at all, I discovered them both roosting on top of her dead body! Sadly she had been another victim of the harsh conditions over Winter and Spring.
