There's been no rain while we've been away, and everything is looking dry. Early this evening, we set out onto the balcony under an umbrella, to water the plants.
Pot Plant Owl watches from the roof as we approach the nest. The three chicks are looking at us with interest - this is the first time they have seen any humans. They don't know what to make of the water as it starts trickling over the side of the nest. No, the chicks weren't wet in the process.
We're so close to them that we can see tiny owl feathers appearing now. They are going to get big very soon.
