The Owl Tower has been designed and built by Adrian Isaac, The Boston Woods Trust chairman. It has specially constructed accommodation for barn owls, little owls, kestrels, sparrows, swallows, bats and bees. Walkers are also catered for with seating inside, it is the ideal place to take shelter in a shower.

The Boston Woods Trust is very grateful for the time and effort Adrian put into this project. The design was refined over many months and the build took over 1,000 hours. It is sited in the award-winning flower meadow which will provide and attract plenty of bird food. In the future it is planned to dig a pond in the vicinity that will provide a ready supply of mud for nest building. The pond will also be a refuge for the many frogs that inhabit the meadow.

The weather vane on the building was designed and made by former Boston Mayor, George Danby, a farmer from Wrangle.

This year's Tree Planting Party is on Sunday, November 30, 9am to 1pm. We will be interplanting hazel trees at Grange Wood, Fenside Road. Everyone is welcome to come and get involved. The trees are provided but we ask you to bring a spade if possible and remember to wear suitable footwear.
