National Trust owl boxes

Barn Owl (female)

With great help from Head Ranger Neil Harris, and Rangers Jerry Page, Matt Shrimpton and Steve Kirkpatrick, we have added further Barn Owl and Tawny Owl boxes to the existing Barn Owl and Kestrel boxes at National Trust sites in the Chilterns Countryside, West Wycombe and Hughenden areas.

One box contained a roosting pair of Barn Owls, and we were able to ring the female shown in the photo.

We also fitted a camera to one of the Barn Owl boxes to facilitate monitoring of any nesting activity this year.
