The Barn Owl Trust offers a variety of talk and slideshow presentations:
The follow up talk: 'The Lennon Legacy Project' is about how the Trust acquired 26 acres of intensively grazed sheep pasture and transformed it into 'Barn Owl Heaven'. It describes how carefully managing the land has benefited Barn Owls and all sorts of other wildlife.
Given by our Head of Conservation, David Ramsden, both talks generally last between 45 minutes and an hour. David is available to answer any questions afterwards.
