FIRST EGG OF THE YEAR

The resident female Barn Owl that can be viewed from our live stream (Nest Box Cam) has produced the first egg of the year, on average she will lay her eggs every two days and will have clutches of between 5 – 8.

The female will be mostly in the box now, only leaving for brief periods, whilst the male will bring prey for her. For help with identification the male has a ring on his left leg and the female has not been rung.

If you continue to watch our live stream you will be able to follow the full cycle from egg through hatching, development and eventually fledging.

We hope you enjoy following our resident Barn Owls.
