Owl at home

An extra bonus – a roosting Barn Owl – greeted local licensed British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) ringer, Stuart Card, when he recently replaced the old owl box at Chesworth Farm. The adult male bird was a healthy winter weight showing the farm habitat provides it with a good diet. Soon sporting a BTO ring, the bird was returned to the new box to continue snoozing before its evening hunt.
