The current pair set up nest in October 2013.
  • The largest brood of eggs we’ve seen is nine. The world record is 14.
  • The box is one of 335 being put up across Somerset to increase the numbers of breeding barn owls as part of the Somerset Community barn owl Project.
  • We still need to get about 60 nest boxes up and the list of parishes is here.
  • The box is situated on private land in east Somerset. We are watching the nest site but won’t be intervening.
  • We think this is a young pair - could be first time parents.
  • Our webcam bloggers have named the parents Boris and Brenda. The owlets have also been named by our bloggers.
