Tawny owl nest in winter

Translated from the Dutch SOVON ornithologists:

16/01/2012 – In Soest a nesting tawny owl has been observed with three one week old owlets. If we count backwards, the first egg must have been laid around December 8 last year. Though we know that tawny owls nest in winter, it seems that laying an egg in early December is on the early side. The breeding season has begun.
