Barn owl - second clutches on the way

male taking food to his mate now brooding second clutch of eggs, as well as continuing to feed his well grown young.

This would appear to be the case in the south of the County, at a well known location, where the female has gone under the radar, when chicks are close to fledge.

This bodes well & will help bolster numbers after winter losses

Its surprising what you can achieve with a phone held up to a telescope ! ;-]

Havnt come across 2 clutches for LO, ive read they can but that its rare for them to do so.
One to look out for
