barn Owl project update

February 04, 2015  •  1 Comment

I have now been baiting and working this site for 63 days and finally getting the bird to land on a more regular basis. The Barn owl usually makes an appearance between 5.00pm and 5.30pm although more often than not this time frame is between 5.20 and 5.25pm. The bird always seems to perch on some of the large farm machinery under a lean-to roof beside my hide. His presence is usually given away as he makes quite a bit of noise on the metal machinery and I have watched him looking down to the ground for mice and rats from this high vantage point. Even with very strong winds and heavy rain he can still hunt under the cover and out of the prevailing winds and together with the free offerings I have been giving him he should find it easier than many other Barn owls to get throughout he winter.
