Young Shorties

While I have found the nest of Short Eared Owls in Scotland I have never found one in my local Pennines. All that changed last week when I watched a female back to a nest in deep heather. It contained four young, of different ages, all together in a heap for maximum warmth. So lets hope it stays wet and there are no moorland fires to hinder their fledging.
