Owl boxes west of Windsor

Barn owl box at Fifield
Last Saturday Carl, Karl and Paul spent a chilly but productive day putting up a barn owl and three little owl boxes west of Windsor: at Fifield; Holyport; and Touchen End.

We also inspected two existing barn owl boxes, one of which had held first a kestrel nest followed by a barn owl nest; the other was being used as a barn owl roost site.

A follow-up visit is planned to install further boxes in this area.
