Due to climate change, the national average first egg date is now 17th April - a month earlier than it used to be. The minimum time interval between a pair occupying the nest site and the first egg being laid is just ten days. Some will already be on eggs and incubation takes just over a month.
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.
