"Operation noctua" End of week 2

  • If there's anyone out there who visits my website regularly, they'll know that I've already uploaded a fifth HD video of one of our little owls preening on its cattle barn roof from last Sunday, but for anyone else - you can see the 40 second clip below (please enlarge the video player by clicking on the box and arrow tab at the bottom RHS of the embedded player, for a much smoother-playing clip).
  • I've left the owls alone this week, but have been up to watch their field from a distance, most days this week.
  • There's no doubt they are a breeding pair, they seem to appreciate the sun (are out preening in sunshine in the middle of the day very often) and are very tolerant of another large illegal fly-tip (looks like a professional house clearance) at the edge of their field.
  • We're due for a mixed week, weather-wise, so I'll maybe not put the trail camera in place again until I can be confident of a day or so of sunshine and at that time, will possibly detail (here) my predicted timing of events in these owls' breeding season....
  • Keep watching this space...
  • Owl watch - 26th February - preening
