Week-end starts with a Tawny........ (Owl)

Wendy and Dawn had a productive time after I left Thursday morning, helping the total to a respectable 37 new birds including, 15 Blackcaps, 11 Chiffchaffs, 1 Cettis, 2 Reed Warbler and a Sedge Warbler.
Finishing off a short session this evening, of mainly Chiffchaffs and Pied Wagtails, we found this fine chap in  net 1 !
 This an adult male Tawny Owl, aged on the lack of a thin terminal bar on the flight feathers, he also is in active secondary moult. Sexed as a male on wing length and weight. What will tomorrow bring...........
