Tawny Owls in the Village
Tawny owls are quite vocal at this time of year, apparently reaffirming their territories in preparation for the next breeding season. Last night we had one (or was it two?) hooting in the village. Back in January, I put up a nest box for them in a tree at the bottom of my garden, but so far there is no evidence that they’ve found it. However, they’re supposed to be quite good at finding boxes, so there must be a fair chance they’ll nest here next spring.
