Beautiful Barn Owls

Sunday, June 26th 2022

The Swaledale bird ringers have been busy monitoring owl nests and at the moment many of the Barn Owls have young chicks. Whilst out one evening last week a guest photographer, Tiny Power, accompanied the group. 

He took a few pictures of the chicks being ringed.

It was a great opportunity to see them up close.

Then whilst the ringing was being carried out he focused on the adult birds from the nest who were busy quartering in the field. Here are some of his stunning photographs, there is no need for any more text here the pictures speak for themselves. However, if you look carefully you will see that these adults are part of the study as they too have BTO rings!

Earlier in the year, he also captured this incredible shot of a tussle between a Barn Owl and a Kestrel over a vole!

Thank you Tiny for sharing your wonderful images!
