Return of a favourite family

Back at the start of Spring I wrote about our favourite local pair of Tawny Frogmouths, hoping to spot their chosen breeding site at a later date. Despite a number of searches, neither of Frances or I managed to locate them. Over the weekend the parents were discovered, with two juveniles in tow! Another great result.
