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!!!

Anything for the weekend sir?

On the way home  from work tonight I stopped off at two sites on the A5199, luckily enough both sites produce good views of little owls, and luckily enough I had the camera with me for a couple of record shots. Hopefully if this slightly warmer weather hangs around for the weekend some better opportunities for improved images will be possible, especially as I'm planning to try out my new hide (more on that later!).
