I was lucky recently to find this nesting Tawny Owl in a situation where I can view without disturbance. The photo taken through my spotting scope at 8.15pm 30/4/10 - 5 seconds at ISO100. Usually two to four eggs are laid. The female alone incubates the eggs for 28 to 30 days. The female tends the young while the male brings food, but after about 20 days both hunt. The young leave the nest after about 35 days. ie. about 2 months after the eggs were laid.
