Welcome to the new Owlers' Blog Network (OBN).

The intention is, primarily, to unite those persons who already have an interest in owls, and who have a blog which has a significant owl-related content, in order that they can easily share their interest and experiences, and build up a sense of camaraderie.

It is also hoped that those who are just developing an interest in owls will be inspired by the links to the blogs of people who are already passionate about these wonderful birds, and join our ranks!

If you have a blog with a strong owl content and would like to become part of this network, please e-mail me at richard@peglermail.co.uk with the URL of your blog. All I ask is that, in return, you add a 'gadget' link to the OBN from your blog using the HTML code that you will be supplied with.

If you have any information which you feel that owlers in general could benefit from, such as a valuable resource for information, or a warning about a developing situation, etc. please submit it to the OBN administrator at richard@peglermail.co.uk.

If you have found this site to be at all interesting/useful, it would be much appreciated if you would show your support by becoming a 'follower'. That way, you'll also see when a new owler joins the network, or if we publicise a new owling resource.

Thank you for visiting, and happy owling!

OBN Welcomes Stevie Evans

A very warm welcome to the latest OBN member. Dedicated expert owler Stevie Evans from Co. Durham has just joined our ranks. Stevie has been an inspiration to me since I first became interested in owls. He is lucky enough to have all five UK species of owl local to him on a full-time basis, and has even had encounters with a Snowy Owl - although that was an escapee!! Stevie's blog 'Cut'n a Long story Short' (subtitled 'In Dusk We Trust'  - I wish I'd thought of that one!) is largely focussed on owling, but does also tell of other encounters with local wildlife. As well as his own experiences and photos, he also includes information and images from his many local contacts. This is another blog that you should not miss!

  1. Many thanks for the warm welcome Richard.

    dont know about the 'expert' tag mind you....
    still learning every week & will hopefully learn a good deal more from this network over time.

    looking foward to future contributions... surely a good few more 'owl-bloggers' out there ....?

    All the best, Stevie.
