I've been looking into Area 29 from outside but I can't find the tawny owl. It does not seem to be in same place as last year, at least not when I go. The fence being in the way does not help. Is the bird in the vicinity of the nest box?
Thanks.

The bird is further along in the fenced off area. Even when the fence comes down it will be hard to locate. We think the Water Rail may have been in the reed bed next to the cafe. Its reappearance coinsided with some work I had done in that reed bed
