Tawny Owls missing from gardens

Tawny Owls missing from gardens
December 17, 2015 04:37PM
This is the time of the year when Tawny Owls can be frequently heard, and even seen, in gardens. This winter, however, fewer people have been reporting them to the British Trust for Ornithology's (BTO) Garden BirdWatch. Could this be a result of a poor breeding season? Keep your eyes and ears out for these mysterious nocturnal visitors and help us keep track of their populations. Tawny Owls are now Amber Listed as a species of conservation concern.

Single tawny owl "yip" heard at 00:45 24/03/16 from Fairfield Grove, Heysham.
Sounded distant - very weak call
waited 10 minutes for a repeat call: it didn't come

3 Tawny Owls, 2 males and a female, calling at dusk yesterday evening at the Crook. No young heard so far this year.

Cheers.
