Males off out hunting, branched young remaining within & begging from the natal area with females in close attendance - one repeating an odd low rasping note whilst she sat on watch waiting for her mates return.
As the light went we went to leave, enjoying open, close range views of the female attending to one of her youngsters - even at this young age the youngster knowing when to remain silent & still to help avoid detection.

Very little else to report other than good numbers of Swifts, only 1 Noctule bat, no sight nor sound of any other owl species.
