A Much Better Evening

Following the disappointments of Wednesday it was really pleasing to go out tonight and find two good broods of Barn Owls. I was joined by new ringer, Eileen, and it was a welcome change to discover five chicks at the first site near to Moore along with another four at Daresbury. In a year of disappointing breeding successes these are the two largest broods that we have had in 2013.


  1. Good news at last! Is this one of the worst years for breeding? Kind regards, Brian.

  2. Hi Brian, it is probably the worst year.

  3. Amazing. Must feel so fabulous to hold them. Great find. Helen x
