This adult had just left one of the chicks with a fieldmouse and was just about to fly off.
Afterwards and away back to sleep.
Two Tawny Owlets on the edge of the Abbey woods just a couple of hundred yards from the house this morning. While I was there one of the adults flew in with a Long tailed fieldmouse and one of the chicks took it out of its mouth , kept a hold of it for a while, then swallowed it in seconds. Nice to see as its been a few years since I have seen young Tawny Owls. They were a bit distant for a decent shot, the light was poor and they were obscured by twigs. They were quite well grown. I believe these were the same birds I saw last week in the same tree calling silhouetted against the darkening sky.
