IN MEMORY OF GYZMO 1997 - 2014 RIP
7th May 2014
1997 - 2014 RIP
Due to a recent & complicated illness, which we thought he was getting over, Gyzmo all of sudden took a turn & went downhill. It is with great saddness to announce that this well loved Barn Owl, our closest friend, gently fell asleep in our hands on morning of 7th June 2014 at 1.30am. Typing this with tears is so damn hard.
Gloucestershire Wild Barn Owls 2014
21st May 2014
Nest Box 2 - Contained a brood of 5 Barn Owlets & 1 adult female
Nest Box 3 - Contained a female Mandarin Duck on 4 eggs
Nest Box 4 - Contained a brood of 6 Barn Owlets & one adult female
Nest Box 5 - Contained a brood of 5 Barn Owlets & one adult female.
All adults were ringed, one adult was already ringed & due to age of the young, only 5 Owlets were rung, which means a revisit is required. The Mandarin Duck was also ringed.
Looking at other data coming in from around the UK, it looks like Barn Owl numbers will increase significantly this year!!! Looking forward to visiting more nest boxes & hearing about the results from others who also work to support Barn Owls.
Image seen here was taken as a record of a brood of 6 Barn Owlets from Nest Box 4. Beautiful aren't they & yes they are true wild Barn Owlets & not captive bred Barn Owlets which is very important!
