Twit T'Loo Barn Owls

A family of barn owls has been discovered nesting in a castle's latrine chute
The birds were found at Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island in Northumberland during a 3m restoration.
The National Trust said a 65ft (20m) exclusion zone had been set up to protect the two adults and four chicks.

No end to the ornithological intrigue on Lindisfarne. Just seen on Ross Ahmed's twitter that there is also a House Martin colony on a natural rock face there and the adults have returned for 2018. Hoping to check that out one day: birding prehistoric style!
