Tales of birding, ringing and observing wildlife around the Fylde area of Lancashire and beyond.

Yesterday evening Huw and I headed to a local farm to ring a late brood of Barn Owls. The nest site was in the bottom of a large grain bin/store, which was a first for me! The two chicks were quite well grown with just a little down remaining and not far from flying. These were in fact the first Barn Owls ringed this year for the group, so that was good. Below are a few pics of one of the chicks.
