Second day of filming

Duhallow Barn Owls once again featured in a documentary by Colin Stafford Johnson and his crew on Friday last, during his second day of filming in the region. Colin was particularly keen to film the chicks being ringed at a site which has featured here in previous posts – a hollow tree in a garden (see the earlier post about this site HERE). They were about 45 and 50 days old, and will be ready to start flying in less than a fortnight.
