Hello Annie :D the Eagle owl is very very rare in the UK there are a few known breeding pairs and it is suspected that others may be breeding in Scotland and possibly elsewhere. The Eagle owls that have been found breeding, are thought to be either escapes from captivity or descended from birds that have escaped from captivity. At the moment in the UK there is a debate underway as to whether the Eagle owls should be removed (this means destroyed) as it is being argued by some that they have not occurred naturally and the effect on other wildlife in the UK the owls may have may be harmful. I think they are magnificent birds and hope they stay, i also feel that some of the sightings of owls, particularly in the Eastern highlands of scotland cannot be automatically assumed to be birds that have escaped :owl: :owl: :ifly:

Hi robbo :D and thanks for telling that, I surely hope "green light" to the eagle owls in UK!

Here by Beleef de Lente in Netherlands eagle owl parents have been growing 3 healthy owlets - also that smallest one is well doing now.

In this videolink the owlets are jumping, flapping their wings and doing some flight exercises - in such a funny way - maybe it's their pretty trousers, their perkily flapping wings... everything with them :)

There is a marvellous videoclip at the site from yesterday, where the owlets are training to fly and are enjoying it!

That will be interesting to see! Now they goes to the left and to the right side of the nest and spend there partly also the nigths - the youngest one, I think, is still at the nest.Kuva 2010-05-12, 00_06_51

At the nest site http://www.beleefdelente.nl/oehoe is a videoclip of yesterday night 10-05: Prooi aanbod op andere.., where a parent bring a prey to the right side of the nest.

They are now 7 weeks old. At 9 weeks old they can fly well. Before that they live near the nest as "branchlings", often they return to the nest. (I read also that if the nest is not safe they can start wander much earlier...)

Hello everyone :D Our young owlets has been measured yesterday, and one has got also gps transmitter.

You can see how it happened from here: http://www.beleefdelente.nl/oehoe / 12-05: Zenderactie K2

Some pics as a slidevideo: Kuva

The tranmitter looks big, but its weigh is only 40 gram and it can'nt be seen anymore when the owl is full feathered. The transmitter will be working about a year. We will get the information of the environment where the owl stays a couple of days or longer. The new knowledge will be published at the site [url]http://www.oehoe.web-log.nl%20m[/url]

Lähetin näyttää suurelta, mutta se häviää kokonaan näkyvistä, kun sulkapuku on täysin kehittynyt, lähettimen paino on 40 g. Lähetin kestänee toiminnassa noin vuoden. Sillä seurataan mm. millaisilla alueilla pöllö viipyilee - parin päivän ajan tai kauemmin. Havainnoista tiedotetaan täällä [url]http://www.oehoe.web-log.nl%20m[/url].
