Finally spring weather has arrived and last Friday the thermometer measured 23 degrees!
In the evening I noticed that all my plants had grown a lot and I was sure that the time had come that the Little Owls would move in. Instead and very surprisingly no owl came.
A little bit worried, I waited for them the next evening but again there was nog sign of life from a owl which confirms my misgiving that they decided to breed somewhere else.
What happened? On Wednesday evening they both stayed for a while in and near the birdhouse; on Thursday the complete farmland (next to the birdhouse) was ploughed after it was treated with glyphosate one week earlier. I'm not sure if the landscape alteration or the destruction of one of their food sources is the reason?
I'm in a very sad mood now as I was very happy to have them that close....I miss them!
