Barn Owls


Chris Payne and Paddy Jackson were busy out in South Northants today visiting Barn Owl boxes and similar nesting sites. The good news was that there were plenty of breeding pairs trying their luck at producing young and it seems that the vole population must have improved from earlier in the year as the average brood encountered was three nestlings.

Cathy Ryden is watching over a breeding pair near Guilsborough and there appears to be at least two pairs doing much the same at Blueberry Farm and in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton.
