Barn owls

Yesterday brought even more good news at Feckenham!

We found another 6 brown hairstreak eggs - which is great news.

And then ... we were going to take down an old barn owl box. It was so dilapidated we didn't think there was any chance of anything being there. Imagine our surprise when 2 barn owls flew out (imagine their surprise too)! We'd known there were barn owls on the reserve but had no idea they were breeding - we've got no records so weren't expecting it!

  1. Look out for an article about barn owls and some fabulous photos supplied by Mark Hancox in November's Worcestershire Now magazine!
