Following our feature on Ollie the Owl last month, another resident writes...

We were very pleased to hear of the sightings of another barn owl quartering the field behind Henbury Rise, especially since we know one was attacked and killed by a buzzard, last year.

We have had a barn owl box on a pole on our field boundary, (as advised by a member of the Chesire Barn owl Trust ) for several years, but to date it has sadly only been used by wood pigeons/squirrels.

Happily, we also have tawny owls in Henbury. Residents of Andertons lane have regularly heard them calling during the evening over the last month. We haven't heard of a sighting of a little owl lately but one has been seen in the village in the not too distant past.
