Little Owls release

Our second group of juveniles were successfully released back into the wild last night from a site near Warboys. The little owls had been waiting patiently for a few days decent weather, after the gales of last week, and last night was the perfect time. A clear sky, albeit a little chilly, but it was calm, and they have had a lovely warm sunny first day out to get acclimatised to their new surroundings. The first took about half an hour to venture out, followed by the second about an hour later. Exactly how we wanted them to leave, under their own steam, rather than being frightened out. We will continue to provide food and monitor over the next week or so, just to make sure they have back up rations should they need it, but we are sure they will adapt quickly. The tawnies will be next in a couple of weeks.
