Last week Rob Gordon from the Kent Stour Countryside Partnership visited to check barn owl boxes located on the estate. He reported signs of new activity, which is great news! This means there could be breeding barn owls in the boxes, or at least supporting birds breeding nearby. This new development could possibly be due to the Kent Stour team moving the boxes a couple of winters ago creating easier access for the birds, as owls like an obvious entry and exit.
Fingers crossed for our owls this season!
