The Barn Owl has often nested in the windows of this building; at dusk, I have sometimes gone to watch it hunt. We were sitting on top of the old coal railway carts in the nature reserve, and the Owl flew back to its nest with a rodent in its clutches. The Kestrel (another resident) was waiting, and we witnessed an ambush - the Kestrel's manoeuvres got the better of the Owl right in front of us.
