"Operation noctua" end of week 11

May 07, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Due to the ongoing recent poor weather and my lack of tip-top health, once again, I've not been following the owls as closely as I'd have liked this week.

Though (as usual now) I have completed a few "drive-bys" and noticed both owls together a couple of times - which is something I've not seen for a week or two.

The ritual pair-bonding doesn't last long though - and before too long the female is back in the box, on eggs I swear now.

If I had to guess, I'd say the eggs would hatch in a fortnight.... but it'd be a complete guess.

I'll be watching for any owlets to appear (in mid June I'd guess again) and return with camera and trail cam...
