The Hot Weather – Has It’s Drawbacks

3 Barn Owl Chicks – Rescued from unbearable heat 

Yesterday our members rescued 3 Barn Owl chicks that were panting in a very hot nest box in Mollington. All three were given water to drink (by pipette) and were bathed in a shallow water bath. Over 20 extra ventilation hours were drilled in the box and a  water bath was placed inside. We’ll be back to check on them as the hot weather continues.
