New home for Barn owl…


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Having noticed a Barn owl was resting in one of our linhays, we decided to try to encourage it to nest and breed by providing it with it’s own luxury coastal home. I made a box up using some left over ply wood and then Rob and i fixed it high up on a wall inside the barn. When Jonathan popped his head into the barn a few days later, it was great to see the bird sitting on the landing platform of the box – he had obviously been checking out the internal decoration….

We will leave it undisturbed for a while now and hope that ‘he’ is a ‘she’ and that some young birds are soon seen flying overhead.

If you want to know how to make a barn owl box or want advice on how you can help this fabulous bird out in other ways, check out The Barn Owl Trust website at www.barnowltrust.org.uk

And of course, the address is No. Twoo, The Barn, Woolacombe……….
