New Housing Development for Wildlife
Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust will be able to install new kingfisher and barn owl boxes in the Cotswolds.
Both kingfishers and barn owls have experienced serious decline in recent years due to habitat destruction and changes in land management, and these boxes will help provide a safe haven for these two threatened but quintessential Gloucestershire species.
The Trust's Cotswold Rivers Living Landscape Programme aims to work with landowners, farmers and the local community to reconnect healthy habitats throughout the Cotswolds.
The barn owl boxes have been made and monitored by local volunteers, and will be put up along the River Dickler at the Trust's own Greystones Farm nature reserve.
Shown here is Trustee of the Friends David Glenn handing over the boxes at Bourton to John Moore and Richard Spyvee, Field Wardens of the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust.
Membership of the Trust costs from just £2 a month. Join on-line www.gloucestershirewidlifetrust.co.uk or visit the Trust's Conservation Centre at Robinswood Hill Country Park, Gloucester.
