Making the Most of Moorlands - Update

Owls doing well 


Here are some pictures of the three most common Owl species on the Moor; Barn, Tawny and Short-eared. All have bred on the Hill this season, making good use of the high vole numbers, with the Barn Owls being particularly successful with a total of 25 young successfully fledged so far - Rick

  1. Great to see all those owl photos Rick. It certainly has been a good year for them. Maybe there will be some late/second broods if the voles hold up well.
