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!!!

Birdfair 2010

Two days down and only one to go, what a privilege it has been so far being on the LROS stand at this years Birdfair, (apart from the aching feet that is!). Loads of visitors too, plenty of old faces and loads and loads of new! I thought it was going to be hard work talking "all things owl" for three days but so far it has been an absolute breeze and the enthusiasm shown by some visitors to the stand has been exceptional and very rewarding.

The LROS stand, what a fabulous job Sue & Jim Graham have done putting it all together, well done guys a well deserved pat on the pack is due.

The new LROS membership has been steadily growing too, with Mr Hague showing us all how it is done recruiting new members, something to do with his good looks and natural charm..........apparently!!!!!

For all those visitors who have shown an interest in the Little Owl nest box that was on show, as promised this is the link, just double click here - LITTLE OWL NEST BOX.
