Tawny Owls are disturbing the peace

26 Aug

News from Jill Cainey

I thought you might be interested to know that some Tawny Owls have been very noisy this week – there has been a pair somewhere between Noble Street  and the Tartars for a few years, with much nocturnal Ho-Ho-Hoooooo-ing.

But this week screeching has been added to the mix and last night at 9:30pm there was a lot of activity around the Church Tower and in the beech behind the Old Vicarage.  They (At least 2) were tricky to spot, but I did see one leaving the beech.  I don’t why there is all this activity – perhaps a juvenile is reluctant to leave the area…

This was a picture of a Tawny Owl I took earlier in the year when bird ringing.
