Hi, We’ve had a busy weekend down at the farm. The Little Owl decided to change its nest site and has moved into an old box, around ten days ago, at the back of the hide. No one said anything at first but the ‘Elephant in the room’ was that we needed to move the […]
We had a busy day down at the farm today. Paul, Chris and myself managed to erect a telegraph pole with a new Kestrel nest box, hopefully just in time for the nesting season. The Kestrel has been seen in the area so fingers crossed. Also the Little Owl has laid her third eggs in […]
The Little Owl is back on her nest and has currently laid two eggs. This year she has moved into a different tree located just around the back of the hide, which as I understand, is very unusual for these birds to change sites. It may well be that she has had some disturbance from […]
Checked the woodland hide nest box this morning and great news – the Tawny Owl is back in the same nest box that she laid in last year.

Our three Little Owl Owlets are now down to two, we think due to the weather, one day its really hot followed by poor conditions. Three of the six eggs failed to hatch for the first time since we have been monitoring the birds with nest cameras, this is almost certainly due the the ‘beast […]
