The group was formed in 2008 to promote barn owl conservation. The area covered is from Normanton near Bottesford to Grimston and Saxelbye near Melton Mowbray, bordered on the east by the A607 Grantham to Melton road and on the west by the border with Nottinghamshire. The group provides nest boxes, habitat advice and monitors breeding success. In 2008 25 nest boxes were erected.
Thanks go to those farmers, gamekeepers and other individuals that erected and monitored boxes prior to the start of this project and for the enthusiastic support from the farmers and landowners we received in 2008.
