Barn Owl

Checked more Tree Sparrow boxes at WWT Martin Mere today, but all contained 2nd clutches or hatching eggs. One nest box contained a brood of 6 Great Tit.

A quick ride on the John Deere mule soon had us at the other end of the reserve (I'd love to have a wardens job, getting to play on these all day!) to ring a brood of 3 Barn Owl chicks in one of the hide lofts.

The rest of the evening was spent in hospital due to an infection in my leg due to insect bites from Wednesday night!!! :(

Four more Common Tern pulli were colour ringed at Doffcocker Lodge this morning.
