Owl be seeing you …………….

For the second year in succession tawny owls have bred two babies in the nest box provided by my neighbour in his garden. Today I was called over to see them roosting in a lime tree.

I saw both the owlets but only one of them gave me a clear shot. You can see some adult feathers emerging from the downy fluff.

This is presumably the female watching us watching them.

While we were musing over the owls a jay popped and stole some cherries from the garden. I suspect that this is not the first or the last time it has raided the cherry trees. So much for offering hospitality to wildlife!
