  1. Hey can you give me more information on where you keep seeing these owls. I'd love to see one

  2. Hi, By far the best place currently to see the Shorties and the Barn Owl,is in Moorleys which is
    the scrubby field adjacent to the car park, which has the feeders in it.
    Although they are being seen sporadically throughout the day, late afternoon
    has seemed more reliable.
