Chimney nest box chicks ringed

The Barn Owl chicks which featured in recent posts were ringed this week. They were about 50 days old, not quite fully grown. They would be due to fledge around the second week of August and as such, are the earliest Barn Owl chicks in our study area so far this season

Barn Owl chicks ringed at the chimney nest box site in Co. Kerry, July 2013 (Filmed under licence: M.O'Clery and J.Lusby).
