At the very beginning of January I got round to cleaning out the owl box, very much needed!
We’ve been lucky that we have had a succession of barn owls nesting in this box over the years. I did disturb two owls roosting when cleaning the box out, it was well over due! I am pleased to say that since cleaning the box out they are back roosting in their nice clean box. Hopefully again we shall have some more baby barn owls this year!
The box is situated in an old oak tree over looking an area which I have just coppiced. This area will be good hunting ground for them!
