Tawnies in the treetops

An adult Tawny Owl Strix aluco perches on a telegraph pole. 

Over the last few nights we have been visited by a family group of Tawny Owls, made up of three fledged owlets and at least one adult. They have taken to perching in our tall garden Ash tree or call in the trees that line the lane whilst the parent bird goes off to hunt in the fields around us.

Last night I recorded the sound of the owlets calling. One can only imagine that the adults travel some distance if silence is a pre-requisite for a successful hunt.
