The Tawny Owl chick was 1 of 2 in a Kestrel box in a garden site in Wingerworth. What a super bird!!
The Nuthatches were a brood of 7 birds in a nestbox at a local farm in Coal Aston, where we also ringed a brood of 7 Great Tits earlier in the month.
All these nests are monitored and recorded as part of the BTO Nest Record Scheme.
There are still 7 active nests in the Linacre boxes, which will need checking again later this week. In addition, Stewart, a fellow ringer with Sorby Beck Ringing Group, sent us details of 2 very exciting nests, 1 Barn Owl and 1 Kestrel that both contain eggs!! Hopefully, I'll be able to help out with the ringing later in the season.
