This lark of finding new Little Owl sites is becoming ridiculously easy, well over the last few days it has anyway! The weather conditions are as perfect as you could possibly wish for, bitter freezing cold nights and clear sunny morning. Little Owls love the morning sun, and especially so during the harsh conditions they are experiencing at present.
So it was time to put into practised what I've been preaching!
Today work took me out towards Coventry and I knew of a very likely looking Little Owl site en route at Sharnford. I have stopped off here dozens of times but never seen anything. The site comprises of a roadside tumbled down brick shack, lush hedgerows and a nice scattering of mature Ash trees with pasture land on all sides. If an owl lived in the area today was the day to see it?
The brick shack.
