ALMOST ADULT

It is very difficult to tell the owlets apart now and with most of the down gone, they are looking quite adult.

They are also spending a lot more time outside of the nest box, although it appears that the adults are still bringing in prey for them.

3 JUVENILES

The three owlets continue to grow strong and healthy and although we cannot see, the eldest chick appears to have started flying school, he is certainly able to come and go from the nest box as he pleases.

At this stage, they are still reliant on their parents for food, but it will not be long before they are able to hunt for themselves.

FAMILY PHOTOGRAPH.

The three adolescents are progressing well in fact it is difficult to tell them apart at times, the two eldest chicks are getting very adventurous and have managed to leave the nest box, fortunately, they have found their way back.

There appears to be plenty of food, but obviously, with the continued wet weather, the adults are finding it impossible to hunt.

The eldest owlet will probably start to take short exploratory flights about 1 week from now but will return to the box to be fed.
