The latest news from transrural is that two owls have been seen entering the box together at the same time meaning we should have a pair! It looks as though all systems are go and although we have no way of knowing, based on what we've heard from other box users in the region, there might even be eggs in the box already!
The weekly sightings are a bit weird as they include:
Tyranosaurus rex and a load of other stuff (all at the US Museum of Natural History - I'll write a proper post on it but if you're in NY and haven't been go, its a credit to the city).
Proper sightings included:
assorted american sparrows;
chickadee and tufted titmouse (all NY);
new born Ovis sp.; and
treecreeper (all Ireland); and
eurasian green woodpeckers (X 4);
grey heron; and
paired peregrines (all in London (baby!)).
Its been quite a week.
