A Little Owlet landing…

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

Here is one from this years session with the Little Owls.

The Little Owls started nesting quite early this year, so when the breeding season began I thought that two broods could be a real possibility. The weather was nice and warm when the Owlets finally hatched, so again I thought that they would be anxious to leave the barn and get out into the fresh and cooler air. How wrong I was. This years Owlets spent weeks and weeks in the nest and when they did finally appear they were already pretty big ( relatively speaking!) . They were however very fluffy and instantly recognisable as Owlets.

Here is one of the Owlets when it was still not sure when to run, fly, walk or hop…
