It was a long way down. You can see the new compost area below. After admiring the view over the adjoining allotments and fields for a few minutes I replaced the old bedding material with some fresh sawdust/wood chippings. Once safely back down on terrafirma I connected the camera system from the owl box to Icatcher Console in the office and crossed my fingers.
Little did I know that less than a week later we would get our first visit from a Tawny Owl! The quality of the clip isn’t too bad but with the prospect of Tawnies nesting in the box I’ve GOT to upgrade the cam!
