Pat, Ian and Arthur install and monitor barn owl boxes all over the area. They said this would be a good site with the fields around the cemetery providing good habitat for owls. Other boxes nearby may well supply young owls looking for their own nesting sites in years to come.
Thanks to John and his team there was some skillful work manoeuvering a very heavy and awkward load then digging the post hole with a rotary attachment on the mini digger. All it needs now is for local owls to move in before the jackdaws find it.
Boxes for the smaller birds like blue tits were also put up in the hedges around the site.
