20th February 2011 - Barn Owl Boxes

Thanks to the help of Barrie, Simon and Brian and the three landowners we managed to erect three new Barn Owl boxes this week around north Warnham.  Possibly a little bit late for this season but the three other dates we organised to do it got drowned out by the weather and Barn Owls have been seen regularly in these areas.
The only ringing this week was a couple of hours at Leith Hill and at home producing 16 new birds including the first Jay of the year.
Birds ringed:
Blue Tit - 8
Great Tit - 1
Coal Tit - 3
Chaffinch - 1
Goldcrest - 1
Greenfinch - 1
Jay - 1

  1. Great job and great photos. We are alway glad to see people encouraging barn owls onto their land with Owl Boxes too.
