First site visit of 2015

The first site visit of the year, and the first for GBOMP. It was carried out with Vince from the “Barn Owl Centre” at one of his Cotswold study sites. Barn Owl pellets were found in one box, and collected for analysis. Some routine maintenance was carried out, and a new position for a box was identified, as there is sufficient rough grassland to eventually support two pairs of breeding owls. Whilst on site a Sparrowhawk was observed trying his luck with a flock of Jackdaws, three Buzzards were in the air at the same time, and a Red Kite put in a brief appearance.
