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 Scott Weston

Until today, the OBN only had five members with all but one from UK (England, even!). So you might think that when I said we had a second request for membership from Essex, it was from the English county of Essex - but no, this was a second member from Essex, Massachusetts, USA.

I am delighted to welcome latest OBN member Scott Western. Scott's blog is a little different to those of other OBN members, being primarily a documentation of the owl sites that he monitors, and with the illustrations almost being secondary to that documentation. It is, nevertheless, an interesting read!

Scott's blog is not on the 'Blogger' system, but on 'Wordpress'. The link to his blog in the right hand column of this blog still works just fine, even if it doesn't show the thumbnail image of his latest post.

So now the OBN has six members - four from old England and two from New England!!

Welcome aboard Scott!
