Three Owlets

Four months ago, we installed two Barn Owl boxes on the farm. Shropshire Barn Owl Group kindly came to confirm what we had suspected, namely that three Owlets are residing in a box – two females and one male aged 45, 50 and 53 days old. The mother is not living with them, but she has cared for them nevertheless by bringing them food. They will be leaving the box at 70 days old to fend for themselves. It is the quickest time the Barn Owl Group have had from installing a box to it being inhabited. Thankfully, there is a great chance the box will be revisited too. So adorable, don’t you agree?
