Ian's Little Owl nest box success

It has been good to find the Little Owls have been using the nest boxes which I erected last winter around Cropwell Butler as well as the boxes at Clifton Grove which Rob Hoare has kindly granted me permission to monitor with him.

I was pleased to find an already ringed female with chicks, she appears to not be a South Notts ringed bird so I look forward to finding out more about her shortly.

It was also good to know that some of these rather smelly chicks had very full bellies regardless of the cool and wet weather we have had recently.
