Barn Owl Update

Barn Owl Update

Sadly, the second oldest Barn Owlet died overnight, leaving just the eldest remaining.

We don't know what the cause was, and speculation won't achieve anything.

Worryingly, the female hasn't been seen since Monday morning. We don't know what has happened to her.

The male is continuing to feed the eldest who appears fine and is feeding regularly.

We have taken advice from various experts and will continue to monitor the situation. For the moment, we've turned the public streaming off - when/if things setlle down, we will turn it back on.

Please remember, we are privileged to watch these wild animals, but nature can be very cruel (to our eyes). If one Barn Owlet survives to fledge, then that would be a success.
