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!!!

Upwards & Onwards.

Today my Barn Owl Box project gathered a little more momentum with three more being made. And yes it was that man again, wannabe X-factor contestant Colin Green who very kindly offered his time and expertise in their manufacture.

A massive thank you must go to the "Build Centre" in Rugby who got the project off to a flyer with a  donation of some sheet timber and to the local businessman who has very kindly made a donation to the box scheme,  this will now enable the project to continue upwards and onwards.
