Tony Martin was living alone at his farmhouse in Emneth Hungate, Norfolk, nicknamed Bleak House, when he caught Brendon Fearon, then 29, and Fred Barras, 16, inside his house.
He fired his shotgun three times towards the intruders, killing Barras.
He was initially jailed for nine years after being convicted of murder but the conviction was reduced to manslaughter on appeal and his sentence was reduced to three years.
The case provoked a national debate about the measures homeowners can take to defend their property.
Speaking about the latest incident, Mr Martin, who no longer lives in Emneth Hungate, said he was visiting the shed when he saw the man attempting to steal car batteries.
Farmer Tony Martin, who was jailed for shooting dead a burglar in 1999, has said he confronted a burglar on his property yesterday.
Mr Martin, who was convicted of murder following the 1999 incident but later saw this reduced to manslaughter, said he caught the burglar in the act near an outbuilding at his property near Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, yesterday.
He said the would-be burglar drove off when he confronted him and he decided not to attempt to stop him, adding: "I couldn't face going through all that again."
A spokesman for Norfolk Police said: "Police were called to reports of an attempted burglary of outbuildings at a property in Wisbech at around 1.20pm yesterday. Inquiries are ongoing."
