Due to climate change, it's not uncommon for Barn Owls to lay eggs in March and 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.
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.
