I had ADMc on the phone yesterday for a chat and he told an interesting tale.
The other day he had two Tawny Owlets in a tree in Morpeth. The chicks, recently fledged, branch out like this and are still adult dependant. This is very early this year. Andy has checked the dates of fledging and believes these two to be 5 weeks old. Along with a 4 week incubation period, means that this pair had a nest with eggs anwhere round about the 10th January .
Can you remember what the weather was like on 10th January?
