Barn Owl Chick Ringing

Great to report the ringing of these 4 gorgeous Barn Owls on one of our NYMMO estates this week.

With their heart shaped face Barn Owls are one of the most distinctive and much loved countryside birds.

Unfortunately they have been suffering a population decline through the 20th century, but our estates this year are reporting good numbers and we are happy to confirm there have been a couple of successful nests in the nest boxes that we have been erecting too. Fingers crossed the population is on the rise.
