Reader Ken Johnston contacted the Advertiser with photographs of a family of barn owls nesting close to his home at the head of Loch Eck in Cowal.
Ken said: ‘They are nesting in a barrel put up in a tree as a nest box. The original brood was six chicks, but there are now four left.’
Visit the Argyllshire Advertiser Facebook page for a short video demonstrating the fascinating sounds made by the barn owl chicks.
