Barn Owl nest boxes

Sunday, June 21st 2009

Two new Barn Owl nest boxes were put up today. One of these was kindly donated by Brian Warner, one of our longstanding volunteers and the other one was from Phil Littler of Sculthorpe Moor Community Nature Reserve in Norfolk which was created by the Hawk and Owl Trust.

Barn owl nest boxes

The Hawk and Owl Trust is a national UK charity founded 40 years ago. It is dedicated to conserving owls and other birds of prey in the wild – and increasing knowledge and understanding of them. To find out more about this trust you can pick up one of their leaflets in the Foxglove Field Centre or go to their website: www.hawkandowl.org

Richmond Time Bank held their AGM at the Field Centre today. After lunch they had a guided walk along Risedale Beck. One member of the group had played in Foxglove Covert as a child (before 1970) and remembers seeing crayfish in the beck and 'tickling' trout to catch them and take them to a fish mongers in Richmond!
