You may remember a story a few weeks ago about the baby Barn Owls at Wangford (see pic below). We are happy to report that in a year which has been hard on Barn Owls two of the three are still alive and well (see main pic). Unfortunately the smallest chick didn’t survive.
After ringing the chicks earlier, Suffolk Wildlife trust came back to check on their progress. The bigger of the two is ready to leave the nest box any day.
Suffolk Wildlife tells us that to date they have only managed to ring 14 birds in their area so far this year so we are extra specially pleased that we have two on our site.
