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!!!

Still Here!!!!

 Hi all, sorry for my lack of posts over the last couple of years.

I have still been out and about and monitoring my owls, but somewhat at a lesser degree than in previous years. However, I am now back with the bit between my teeth and will be posting the odd update on Blogger (see image below that I was lucky enough to capture this morning). 

However, if any of you would like a more frequent catch up then please follow me on twitter, my user name is @PMRiddle

It's great to be back, catch up soon.....
