Conservation in action…

A few months ago, we installed a barn owl box in a barn at one of our farms. We have recently had reports that a barn owl has been flying in and out of the barn! We don’t want to disturb the barn owl, so we won’t be going in to check whether its using the box yet.

The box was made by Phill, one of our full time volunteer rangers, based on a Barn Owl Trust design. In the photo you can see George, another full time volunteer ranger, fixing the box into position.
