The Bucks Owl Raptor Group
The WorkshopBORG evolved in 2012 from the Aylesbury Vale Project. The group is completely independent and run entirely by volunteers. We build, position and manage owl and raptor nest boxes, this is done in partnership with landowners. Once erected the boxes are monitored and maintained on a regular basis. Over 600 owl and Kestrel boxes have been erected by volunteers. Birds that take up occupancy of these boxes undergo further monitoring by the volunteers. This monitoring forms part of a national recording scheme managed by British Trust for Ornithology (BTO).
As well as farmers and landowners Borg also work with a range of conservation organisations including, The Chilterns conservation board, River Thame conservation trust, BBOWT, The National trust, Waddesdon Estate and Buckinghamshire County biodiversity dept.
