As a late addition to National Nestbox Week a new owl box has been erected on Penallta Marsh. It was supplied and installed by Reginald Moore Ltd, in partnership with the Countryside Service, as mitigation for building works in Nelson.
The box looks out over the flower-rich grassland of Penallta Marsh which is part of Parc Penallta. The marsh is the ideal habitat for barn owls to hunt and is located by the cycle route between the Fishing Lakes and Penallta Road. Hopefully, the new box will soon be home to new residents.
