"Operation noctua" end of week 25

August 13, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

The penultimate "Operation noctua" report this year as it's fair to say, what with one reason or another, I've  not been able to spend nearly as much time up at "owl-ville" this breeding season, with the family of little owls as I would have provisionally anticipated back in early spring (or even late winter).

Anna and I have taken two brief drives up to the owls in the past week - and both times we have seen two little owls (the adult male and one youngster I think) on the adult male's winter roosting shed.

I am still thinking of leaving the trailcam in place for a few more days for week 26 (on the winter roost) - we'll see how that progresses - I'll recce the proposed new site before the end of this week.

Full final report (week 26) coming soon - and a full review of our little owls' breeding season, 2012.
