Little Owl Chicks have hatched – 12th May 2018

The Little Owl chicks have started to hatch two weeks later than last year. For anyone who would like to get some flight shots the next few weeks is the best time of year. The parent birds will be visiting the feeding station for hours trying to keep on top of the Owlets appetites before the chicks fledge and start to feed them selves.
