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!!!

An apology!

Due to circumstances beyond our control the "live" Barn Owl nest cam that I promised would be up and running on this blog for all to share now won't be, well not in the foreseeable future anyway? The problem lies with the low broadband speed at the location of the nest site.

However, Daz and I are still able to watch the birds live from the comfort of our homes, and the latest screen shot that I took this evening shows the pair of owls mating.

So if any of you technophobes out there have got any ideas on how we can stream the live images via my blog with only 2 meg of broadband speed I sure would like to hear from you..........
