Something different…………….

We are supporting the Bisham Barnowl Group and yesterday saw us putting up a tawny owl box.

As tawny owls are regularly heard calling in this area, hopefully a pair will use this box for nesting next year.

Bisham Barn Owl Group is a group of volunteers who run a nest box project primarily for Barn Owls, but also for Tawny Owls and Kestrels, in the local area around Bisham in Berks and South Bucks.
