A BUSY DAY BUT A GOOD ONE!

Clive and Gordon joined me today for a long morning round Holme Pierrepont, Radcliffe, Stragglethorpe, Cotgrave, Clipston and Normanton on the Wolds.

We found 4 Barn Owl nests, catching 7 adults, 6 of which were remarkably new birds and had out first chicks of the year, two only a couple of days old, and also another female Tawny and a chick. The barn Owls were on big broods, one had 7 eggs, 2 had 6 and the other 5 bringing our total for the year to 12 pairs and 61 eggs and chicks; an average of 5 per box round Holme Pierrepont, Radcliffe, Stragglethorpe, Cotgrave, Clipston and Normanton on the Wolds.
