"Operation noctua" end of week 28

September 03, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Because I thought I'd continue "Operation noctua" for a wee while (whilst owls are still visible) and because there's been a bit of harvesting (and sowing by the look of it) at the farm over the last two weeks (meaning owls have been a bit hard to come by) I've reset the trailcamera on one of their favourite barns this week.

The trailcamera has been in place for a few days and I hope to keep it there until the end of the week (I know the weather is set pretty fair for at least a week or so, maybe two).

I've been up to check the owls two or three times this week - and the situation is the same as it has been for a while - each time I go up, I see two owls (at least one young and at least one adult - I can't tell if the birds are the same individuals each time I go up there so all four owls could still be on site for all I know).

The fields have fallen quiet again I think, after the recent flurry of activity - so it will be interesting to see if I have any HD footage when I pick up the trailcamera at the end of week 29 - I hope it's still there and it's recorded a little something for me.... but no clips this week (gone) as the camera was being replaced at the time...

Fingers crossed for a good report at the end of week 29 eh?
