From mid-April through to late May, most pairs are incubating eggs and/or brooding small young. Although young in the nest are most likely to be heard in June and July, there can be huge variation. The earliest pairs could have fledged young in June whilst the latest may not have yet laid their eggs.
Please report all Barn Owl nests, roost sites, and sightings (dead or alive), anywhere in the UK. Thanks.
