Tawny Owl – juv begging call – Lytchett Matravers

The below recording is of juvenile Tawny Owls in Lytchett Minster producing a classic begging call to the parents. This is a fairly common sound in any woodland this time of year as chicks start fledging the nest. Its well worth familiarising yourself with sound as it allows you to not only confirm breeding success but you can also visit the same site in daylight hours to see if you can spot the chicks huddled together as they roost on a branch or in the fork of a tree trunk.
