At PFM we are aware of the important role that a successful business can play by supporting causes in the local community.
To this end we have become partners with Dorset Wildlife Trust in an important venture to help the Barn Owl. This much loved bird suffered a decline in numbers through the 20th century which is in part caused by low food availability, due to loss of habitat. They are now a rare sight in the countryside and we are delighted to have partnered with the Dorset Wildlife Trust to sponsor the ‘Barn Owl Nest Box Webcam’ in the habitat rich nature reserve at Lorton Meadows. We feel lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the country and are “EGGcited” to help the Dorset Wildlife Trust in this cause. The nest box allows viewers to watch the progress of the new additions to the Barn Owl family from the time they hatch right through to when they leave the nest.
The nest box is occupied for about 10 months of the year, as after the chicks have left the nest, the male returns throughout the winter to roost.
