Wow! Two posts in one day! What's happening?
I have a friend with a barn owl box and I was lucky enough to be animal-sitting for her when the Suffolk Wildlife Trust came to ring the chicks. I took some video with my Ixus 50 and here it is, hardly edited at all. This was September 2008, so it's not recent, but I didn't have a blog back then!
Barn owl numbers are worryingly low and we are fortunate that we have them locally. In winter months, or if the ground is flooded, their food supply is severely diminished and they risk starvation.
I saw another barn owl box today, down by the river; I'd like to know if it's being used.
