New Barn Owl takes over

There has been an interesting footnote to the story of the veteran male Barn Owl, found dead on the Tralee Bypass last November (you can read the story in this post HERE). A visit to the nest site near Tralee today found a new male Barn Owl has taken over the reins at this traditional nest site, perched on the same beam outside the nest box, in an old stone barn.
