This is our young tawny owl, caught on my trail cam. Born in our nest box he/she visits the garden just about every night and I have it on trailcam video taking my gift of a day old chick and then returning to the apple tree stump with a freshly caught mouse. He (we’ll call him ‘he’ for ease of writing) has visited the tree stump three or four times per night for the past couple of nights, even as early as 7.30pm so, when I get the time, I might set up an SLR to try and capture some better shots. Its great to see him still around since I thought by now his parents would be sending him to find his own territory. My trailcam is more or less a permanent fixture on the tree so I’ll keep on monitoring his progress.
