This morning a pleased farmer reported that a pair of Barn Owls were already roosting in one of the boxes that we had put up on 21 January.
The birds don't usually move in that quickly!

We replaced another old box this morning. The problem was that the old one was on the top of our tallest pole; it may not look it, but this was a long way up and work proved very difficult.
The box itself sits in the middle of a busy stableyard and despite the continual activity, it remains a regular breeding site. Although no owls were present this morning, there were plenty of fresh pellets around and I am confident that the new box will be used very soon.
