Understanding the maps
Broadly, the different colours represent the following:

Red - Landscape very suitable for Barn Owls.
The provision of nest boxes is the main priority. Foraging habitat should be improved if nesting success is low (less than 3 young per pair).

Cream - Landscape quite suitable for Barn Owls.
The provision of foraging habitat is the main priority. Nestboxes should be provided where foraging habitat is above average or being created.

Blue - Landscape generally unsuitable for Barn Owls.
The altitude/vegetation/winter climate determine the area to be largely unsuitable for Barn Owls. However if Barn Owls are already present, encourage as much as possible.

Yellow Hatched Areas - Motorways and dual carriageways. No nestboxes should be erected within 1km of major roads unless the road is screened by hedges or continuous tree lines immediately adjacent to the road surface.

Also displayed on the maps are landscape features to help you identify your location/study area. These are:
Blue lines - Rivers and canals
Black lines - Minor roads
