Fifield and Touchen End boxes

barn owl box - new design
On a return visit to Fifield and Touchen End yesterday we were able to put up 2 kestrel, 1 little owl, 1 tawny owl and 1 barn owl box.
The tawny owl box is a replacement for one that had a nest in 2013 but which blew down last year.
The barn owl box is the first of our new design boxes - see photo.
This design has a larger floor space than the triangle box, and the entrance hole has been positioned higher, to prevent the chicks from leaving before they are ready to fledge.
