New Barn Owl site in quarry

Barn Owl site, Co. Kerry, 13th June 2013 (M.O'Clery)

Nationally, quarries only make up about 2% of known Barn Owl sites. This new one is just outside Duhallow, but not far. There was one Barn Owl seen inside the tunnel, but we will have to wait before we can discover if they are nesting here, or if it is a lone roosting bird. More on this site soon...
