Barn Owl chicks hatch at Carr Farm

Great news! We have had barn owl chicks in not just one but both owl boxes😊 two in the barn box AND two in the horse chestnut tree box, all weighed, measured, ringed and carefully returned to the boxes a few weeks ago.

Then this week they have been caught on our wildlife camera fledging, this evening we have seen both youngsters from the barn box making small flights and returning to the barn. The two from the tree box which were we think a little older have been seen hunting and roosting in one of the oak trees – a great result!
