The Barn Owl appeared just after sunrise in a tree near to where they have bred in the past. The sun was only just breaking the horizon - the golden hour. I managed few quick photos before it disappeared into a hole in the tree. A couple of Jackdaws came out very fast after the owl went in, so I guess this is only a roosting hole.
Five strong young Ravens were visible in a nest high up on the rock face. The distinctive croak of an adult alerted them to the arrival of breakfast. The five chicks are almost ready to fledge and so very soon they will be learning to fly like their parents. However, a few crash landings await them before they earn their 'wings'.
