Hi and welcome to my Blog, my name is Paul Riddle and I live in south Leicestershire, UK. Back in August 2007 my quest began to locate as many local Little Owl territories as possible. The driving force was a reported decline in the uk numbers so I thought I would do my bit and conduct a study in my area. After 7 years and countless hours out in the field I have detected over 200 different sites. With a thirst for a greater understanding of the owls a more comprehensive monitoring and nest box programme then commenced. This also now includes monitoring the local and very sparse population of Barn Owls, please pop back occasionally and catch up with the life and times of my owls and any other wildlife that I come across. I hope you enjoy your visit!!!

The morphing owls!

Driving back from work tonight or rather slipping and sliding I decided to skid off at one of my little owl sites (No 20) over near Willoughby Waterleys. Bit of a peculiar site this one! One never can tell what type of owl will pop out of this particular hole, tonight it was the little owls turn (pic above) the last time it was the tawny's turn! (pic below).
I know nature has some miracle ways but is there something sinister going on here????
