Success!

Always exciting to record Barking Owls in the Newstead district … even more so when there are signs of successful breeding.

I’ve been watching this local pair for a few weeks now, hoping to see a youngster in tow. Typically the owlets are out of the nesting hollow by early October and I was beginning to think this pair had failed in this year’s breeding effort.

Not so!
