2014 saw a much improved picture for barn owls across the UK compared with 2013 when numbers greatly declined following a cold, late spring.
Members of the BOAG team were filmed constructing barn owl nest boxes at the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust's HQ, where the group is based. Barn owl nest boxes provide important roost and nest sites for barn owls as many of the traditional and natural nest sites, such as old barns and hollow trees, have been lost in recent years. Nest boxes provide an alternative breeding place for barn owls and are important in conservation as they enable barn owl groups to monitor the barn owl population and gauge how they are doing from year to year.
BOAG will feature on Inside Out for the West Midlands region on Monday 9th February at 7.30pm.
