Barn owls captured on Castlemartin Range camera

Ranger Lynne Houlston explains the different ways she’s been monitoring barn owls on the Castlemartin Range for more than a decade. In January 2018 I installed a motion camera in a ruined farmstead on the Castlemartin Range to see if barn owls were using this location as a nesting or breeding site.

Learn about the Naturally Connected pilot project

National Park Authority Biodiversity Officer Sarah Mellor looks back on the Naturally Connected pilot project, which worked with local businesses to explore opportunities to enhance biodiversity on their land.
