Tawny Owls hunting during the daytime – 4th May 2019

The Tawny Owls are now feeding two chicks which means that they are out hunting and visiting the hide during the daytime. This is the only time of year that they will appear in the daylight. Last year this behaviour lasted until the chicks fledged the box in mid summer. We are running afternoon photography sessions for anyone interested in capturing these amazing birds. Hope to see you soon. Les.
