Milton Keynes, UK-based Niftylift was brought in to help re-house a rescued Barn Owl.

The bird, discovered by local man Paul Doidge, who spotted the owl chick lying on the ground inside a barn, had fallen from a box located in the rafters of the barn. A flaw in the box’s design had allowed the non flight-ready owl chick to get too close to the box door and fall out.

Mr Doidge nursed ‘Ollie’ the owl back to health and then set about designing a new and improved bird box for the chick.

Due to the awkwardness of the location, Mr Doidge called on access platform manufacturer Niftylift for assistance. The firm deployed a team with a Nifty 210 trailer mount, which was chosen for the task due to its outreach of 11.8 m.
