Fruitless Barn Owl Searching

Just a quick update on the Owl situation... I've still not managed another sighting since that first one, which seems a long time ago now! I think she is there; I heard a distant screech a few nights ago at around 11pm. I've taken to late night sessions after several luckless early morning and dusk visits. I figured that if there is a pair, the female will be begging for food regularly and I'd be more likely to hear than see them. On the flip side, if there isn't a pair the lone individual should be out and about trying to find a partner, again with a fair bit of noisy screeching involved. I suspect this more likely at the moment - but this may mean that the bird is going further afield and using a number of roosting sites, rather than staying at the box.

Of course, it should all become clearer in the next few weeks...
