New Barn Owl Boxes
Before the nesting season is upon us, we’ve started building and will soon be putting up two new Barn owl boxes at Blue House Farm. One will replace an existing box which is in deteriorating condition, and the other will be going in a brand new location. By providing nest boxes, we are helping support the breeding success of Barn owls by ensuring they have suitable spaces to lay their eggs and raise their chicks.
Last week, we had a great session with our volunteers building the first new box and starting on the second. After lots of careful measuring, remeasuring, and some brilliant teamwork all round, we’re really pleased with our first new box!
