Little owl chicks

In early May the little owls hatched two chicks. I have included pictures of them at 2 weeks and a month. They both left the nest box on the 8th of June and can be seen with their parents in the aviary next to the raven.

Little owls were introduced to Britain in the 19th century. Unlike, a lot of owls they will hunt during the day, although they are most active at dawn and dusk.
