Young Tawny Owl, neighbour’s garden, Aylmerton
Yesterday afternoon I was in a neighbours garden when I heard the familiar squeaking call of young Tawny Owl. I managed to locate one individual out in the open but the other two remained hidden.
The final activity of the NENBC’s Spring Social and Wildlife Activity Event was a Bat Walk in Felbrigg Park. We’d just got to the edge of the park, opposite the Wood Yard, when one of the group spotted a rufous-looking adult Tawny Owl sat out in the open. Further along the path through the shelter belt I heard juveniles up in the oaks. We stood watching as, one by one, they flew to the adjacent tree – a total of FIVE!
That, together with four species of bat, a Barn Owl and a Little Owl, provided a great finale to the Club’s 2015/16 Indoor Meeting Programme.
