Brilliant! Are these the ones with attitude?

Yes the ringer has thick clothing and a very well scratched black helmet. There are two other guys one has a long pole with a 600mm square solid 'flag' coated in soft foam - to wave at the Owl if she attacks the ringer. The chicks are about the same size as a fully grown Tawny owl.

Probably the highlight of our trip to Sweden last year.
