Four Healthy Owlets in Residence

We have been hearing the shrieks from the owlets over the last few weeks, with "Mum" and "Dad" busily flying down the valley and back with voles and mice. What a sight today when Phil, our "ringman" came to ring the owlets. He climbed up to the owl box in the Sussex barn (just next door to the oast) and  found there were four very healthy young, ranging from one week to 4 weeks old (an owl only hatches one egg out per week). With a ring on their legs, these rare birds can now be monitored - a few years back one of our owls was found in Ramsgate, 60 miles away!
