Out-of-hours Emergencies

Live owl emergencies - how the Barn Owl Trust can help

As it is based in Devon, the Barn Owl Trust normally only receives Barn Owls found in southwest England; across the rest of Britain casualties are received by a very wide range of independent rehabilitators. The information on this website is extensive and by following the navigation system (to the left <) or the links (on the right >) you should be able to assess the casualty, determine what needs to happen to it next, and get help. If you cannot find a local rehabilitator we should be able to put you in touch with one but not all of the UK is covered.

During normal working hours you can get one-to-one advice by calling us on 01364 653026.

Outside normal working hours (only), call our Live Owl Advice number 07889 594663


Please note Our Live Owl Advice number is occasionally unavailable due to the limitations of mobile phone reception and is unavailable during Christmas holidays. Please do not call between 6 pm and 8 am if the call can wait until 9 am. Thank you.

A whole chapter is dedicated to casualty assessment, short-term care and the principles of rehabilitating Barn Owls in the Barn Owl Conservation Handbook
