Tucked away in the Blackdown Hills
Our barn owl box in the Blackdown Hills is inhabited by our barn owl couple - Finn and Trude - and before that, it was inhabited by Finn and his other lady owl, Orla. Last year Finn and Trude hatched 4 fabulous owlets, and they successfully fledged and ventured out on their own. We are delighted that they have come back again this year to use the box. Keep your eyes peeled for news and sights of owlets later in the season!

Looking after nature
If we want to still see beautiful creatures such as barn owls in the future, we need to make sure we look after the places they call home. We hope they connect you to nature, entertain you and inspire you to take action for nature where you live!
