Baskets are best!

Some good Long-eared Owl habitat with hawthorn and lots of rough ground full of voles and mices.
Today we augmented two IKEA baskets and fixed them at about 3m with strong cable-ties. See if you can spot it! Here it is close up.

The artist Emily Lang visited today and it was great to have some help although it's cold work standing around while I wrestled around inside the hawthorn trees.

Here I am sporting helmet, eye protection and padding to avoid the thorns. Looks quite thin now that branch I am hanging off but it was fine!
