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!!!

Nothing to report on the local owling front from this weekend, I wasn't able to get out!
However, there is some good news from the breeding Barn Owls where I can observe all that goes on via our camera, take a quick look at the video to see.

For some reason the short clip gets a bit distorted at the end, maybe you didn't make out the three eggs? I'm a bit pushed for time right now as I need to get off to work, I'll have a look later to find some improved footage.
