I went back to the second burrow again today to see if any more juveniles were to be found. Nothing to report on that front unfortunately. I did spend some time observing the owlet as it went abut its morning routines. I will load a series of images over the next dew days documenting what it got up to. I also observed the parents chase off a European Turtle Dove and an Arabian Grey shrike that ventured too close for comfort.
The owlet commences to yawn
This time it continues to keep the beak open with its head pointing downwards
After a bit of effort out pops a food pellet
The owlet watches it as it falls off the side of the look-out point
And disappears into the rocks below
That feels much better
