Tawny overview

Having completed the first checks of our 92 Tawny Owl nest boxes in south Nottinghamshire.  The situation here is that 23 of our boxes have Tawny Owls in them this year.  Of these:
  • female was sitting tight in 5 boxes
  • 4 boxes had 1 pullus
  • 3 boxes had 2 pullus
  • 2 boxes had 3 pullus
  • 7 boxes had 2 eggs
  • 2 boxes had 1 egg
Of the remainder of the boxes:
  • 11 had Jackdaw
  • 8 had Stock Dove
  • 1 Great Tit
  • 21 squirrel
  • 28 were empty
Several Tawnys have since failed and there was little evidence of mammal remains, but some birds.
