From mid-July through to the end of August most young Barn Owls are starting to learn to fly. This stage of development, known as fledging, only takes a short time, yet fledglings will remain dependent on their parents for several weeks afterwards, before finally starting to disperse.
Please report all Barn Owl nests, roost sites, and sightings (dead or alive), anywhere in the UK. Thanks.
- Step One – please check through the quick Owl Identification Guide - just to make sure the bird you saw really was a Barn Owl. Pellet identification and owl sounds included.
- Step Two – complete our one-page survey form.
- Step Three – create your own log-on to make your future reporting even quicker and view your submissions.
