It has got to the stage where I need to "spread my wings" so to speak in my quest to locate new Little Owl sites in Leicestershire. So far I have been on a one man crusade working mainly within a 6 or 7 mile radius of where I live. What I am looking to do now is try and find out if the concentration of territories I have is representative across the county.
Fortunately the local evening newspaper, "The Leicester Mercury" have ran a feature on how well the Little Owl is doing and through this article I am asking the residents of Leicestershire to help me locate more sites further a field by emailing me with details.
In the article they featured this image (below) that I took of the male Little Owl emerging from it's nest hole at my excellent "7 egg" site in Whetstone.
