It was on 23 April 1889 that the first Little Owl nest was found in the UK – at Lilford Hall, not far from where I now live.  The 4th Baron Lilford had introduced the non-native Little Owl into the UK (others were trying too) and it was his gamekeeper who found that first nest within the grounds of Lilford Hall.

Regular readers of this blog may notice that I tell you this every year (see here, here and in another life here).
