Owls in a North Somerset village now have a safe place to nest, thanks to the efforts of a wildlife group.

Alan Walker, who is a member of the Yatton and Congresbury Wildlife Action Group (YACWAG), built a nesting box to be installed close to the Strawberry Line. He built the box after learning of two owl chicks which had fallen from an old nesting box near Congresbury.

Nesting boxes give owl chicks a safe environment to grow.

A YACWAG spokesman said: “When Alan heard of their tumble he made the owls a brand new box, which was installed by YACWAG just before Christmas.”
