Around 30 residents gathered in Assington yesterday afternoon to celebrate the unveiling of a new owl box in the village’s conservation area.

The box was given to the community by Suffolk Wildlife Trust and will act as a home for barn owls to nest and raise their young.

Suffolk Wildlife Trust is installing 100 boxes across the county this year in an attempt to encourage growth of the barn owl population in the area.
