Mrs H, who is fast becoming an expert on all things barn owl, is in a state of high dudgeon this morning. Apparently she got the design for our owl box from the Barn Owl Trust and now they are saying that it's been withdrawn because it is not a good design, which is what has been causing the owlets to fall out. According to the Lammermuir Hills leading expert on barn owls, "Seventy five per cent of the deaths of baby owls falling out f the nest is caused by this faulty design." Never fear, she has a cunning plan involving putting up an under-platform and a branch for them to climb back up. This will take pace after they've vacated the nest to avoid any injury from a swooping adult owl.
