Cornish Barn Owls 2018 (C) Barn Owl Trust & Wildlife TV ... all pics/vids posted with their kind permission!

  • 20.00

    All empty unless hiding,

    but hope fully will have a good nights hunting, as rain all day today.

  • Saw your diabolical weather on radar Kate with worse to come so really hope they get a chance to gather some prey!

  • She appeared on the middle beam (the juvenile BO, not Kate! lol) at 20:20 and left at 20:21

    It sounds quite windy at the site.

    20:45 I can't quite make out if there is a BO on the back beam or not

    Yes, it does appear to be as it flew below the box and the up to the back behind the diagonal (too quick to capture it)

    20:55 Went to the ledge for a couple of minutes then on the beam behind the box. Up onto the box, middle beam and then out of the barn at 20:58

    22:40 The weather is not sounding very pleasant outside the barn. No sights or sounds from the youngsters

    23:10 No other activity. Hoping they are all safe and well. Goodnight

  • Well here's one of them Sandra

  • Morning both

    Still raining this one on back beam. Cam fuzzy, and I  thought for a while ,frozen, as looks as though she is head turning CHOL:):)  but it is the mark on wall.

  • 10.29 EN/B or hiding

  • There is one in the corner of the middle beam (on the right side as we look). You can just see the tail (I assume) moving from time to time. Ian

    EDIT - it now seems to have disappeared from view.

  • 15:07 Just checked in to find the female in the box

    Watching flies

    15:19

    15:26

    15:34

    15:36

    I have to go now SYL

  • Me too but no record of exact time cos my cams went down!  Grrrrrrrr

  • 20:07 From being what I thought was an empty barn, she landed on the tray and then left

    20:42 One on the back beam

    20:58 One on the back beam

    To the box and then left the barn

    21:00 Back in, onto the middle beam

    To the ledge

    Onto the box again

    21:01 A quick look and then left the barn

    There has been no rasping

    21:21 Now there is, very close to the barn, 4 or 5 long rasps. A brief lull and then the calls started again.

    21:23 It came in onto the tray, then on top of the box and then flew to the back of the barn, out of view.

    21:26 On the back beam, calling

    21:40 After preening, went to the top of the box and then flew out. Still rasping

    22:30 Still nearby and continuing to call

    23:12 I thought there may have been a food delivery outside (quick, excited rasps from the juvenile) but it hasn't come into the barn and is continuing to give its usual call.

    23:20 Two juveniles food begging now. The one I've been hearing throughout this evening has been the male (higher tone) in comparison to the female's lower tone

    23:25 Both are very close to the barn, possibly at the exit.  Goodnight

  • Morning all

    One been on middle since I first checked 06.10

  • Good morning Kate

    8:43 Into the box, it could be the juvenile male but I haven't been able to catch its tail feather markings

    8:50

    Very pale tail

    9:09

    9:35

  • Certainly no tail view in this one ... Owl on a stick!! Lol

  • Ah good, has moved to show us his unusual feathers

  • Not sure if this is Mrs on side of box, think she may have been here all day if it is.
