The team at Flixton Quarry has now installed its second Owl box. Suffolk County Council has been asking Quarries in the East to install these boxes where possible and they have been very successful.
Barn Owls in the East are on the increase due to these projects whilst in the rest of the UK Barn Owls are on the decrease. Suffolk Wildlife Trust visit the sites to measure record and ring the young chicks.
Brian Beales, Quarry Manager, and the team are hoping to hear the sound of little hoots in the near future!!
