This Barn Owl chick was found by our Archaeologist Matt Lotter at one of his sites in the Addo area. It had fallen out of its nest on a cliff which was inaccessible, and is now being reared by Andrew, resident Game Ranger who is a trained Falconer.
The Barn Owl chick was approx 10 days old when he was found and we now estimate him to be 30 days old. He weighs 330 grams and is fully covered in down. We will keep you updated on Digger’s progress before his safe release!
