Bypass owl deaths continue

Yet another Barn Owl casualty on the Tralee Bypass, 2nd March 2015 (Michael O'Clery).

Casualty number eight (that we know about) on or near the Tralee Bypass since it opened in October 2013. Four have been found during weekly survey visits since August 2014 including two on the same day (see this post HERE), while the remaining four (including this one) have been reported by members of the public. Close links with interested people who travel the route frequently has been most important in determining the extent of the road deaths.

The almost pure white tail shows it to be a male (Michael O'Clery).
