Little Owl Disaster

May 9, 2022 at 9:23 am

In the last ten years I have spent some wonderful moments filming a pair of Little Owls in a ruined building in the high Pennines. This weeks photos were taken last week as the male Little Owl was hunting for prey for his female who was already incubating eggs. All seemed well until someone appeared to tell me that she had purchased the building and as soon as plans were approved the whole building would be gutted! She had no interest in the Owls so it appears that it is only a matter of time before their ancestral site is gone forever. What can I do to stop it happening? – absolutely nothing!!
