In an average year most young Barn Owls will have started dispersing by mid-September. Dispersal is the process by which young Barn Owls leave the nest site and become independent of their parents. Dispersal is usually over by the end of November when home ranges become established.
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.
