Can you help?

We have managed to put a barn owl nest box in 288 parishes around Somerset. But we need to have one in all 335 parishes by the end of September 2014. 

Below is a complete list of the parishes that have never had an enquiry, do you live in one of those parishes? Or do you know someone who does? If so have a look at the requirements for having a nest box on your land.
