Three from Five

Our first Long-eared Owl pulli of the year on todays ringing & nest inspection visits.




 Feisty ! Lunging, bill clacking & spreading developing wings - all part of their defensive strategy.
 nicely settled down ready for rings to go on

processed & ready to go back up the tree

 several Kes clutches of 6

 The Dunce hiding in the corner.

yes its picked up a bit, few more Leo nests on the go, but no synchronisation at all, so makes the task more difficult.
