Good Dutch little owl nesting season

This is a little owl video.

The little owl research group for the Winterswijk region in the Netherlands reports about the 2014 nesting season (translated):

The owls responded promptly [to good circumstances this year] with a high occupancy, an extremely early clutch start, large clutches, many owlets in excellent condition, high nest success and above all, by bringing in big mice and voles numbers. A clutch size of 4.22, an average clutch start of April 7, an egg success of 64%, an average of 2.73 owlets per nest started, a nest success of 80%, a condition index of 1.06, and the incredible number of 590 mice and voles in the prey stock: all parameters were well above the long-term average.
