"With your help we want to get a barn owl box in each of Somerset’s 335 parishes.
"With up to 80 per cent of barn owls now nesting in man-made boxes we need to get more boxes up across Somerset and provide more of the habitat barn owls need."
Chris Sperring MBE, Conservation Officer for the Hawk and Owl Trust and Vice President of Somerset Wildlife Trust with Beau the Barn Owl
Please help give barn owls a new home in every Somerset parish
This past winter has been tough for a lot of wildlife, not least the barn owl whose numbers plummet more during harsh weather than at any other time - as food and nesting sites are even more scarce than usual.
