It is Good to be Wrong

After ringing what I expected to be the last brood of the year on Monday evening it was really pleasing to find another tonight at Whitley.
Mum was a bit sleepy, very understandable considering the chattering calls of three newborn owlets and two eggs which are about to hatch. These birds should be ready for ringing at the end of October which is when we would normally be checking second broods which all goes to show what a peculiar year 2013 is proving to be.
