Sturdy Box

I received a call yesterday to say that the tree in which one of our boxes had been erected had fallen down in the recent strong winds and, amazingly, that a pair of owls had been seen flying out from it. Arriving this morning, I found that although the tree had smashed to the ground, the box itself was still in one piece and that there were many fresh Barn Owl pellets inside.

The box was put up in an adjacent tree in this old orchard and hopefully the owls will soon return and take up residence.
