State of the UK Barn Owl Population

 

State of the UK Barn Owl Population - report

The purpose of this document is to provide an early indication of the state of the UK Barn Owl population during the previous calendar year using annual monitoring results collected by independent monitoring projects across the UK. At least 7,000 potential nest sites are checked each year by a wide range of enthusiasts, volunteer groups, and dedicated Barn Owl projects. The idea of producing this report was stimulated by the shockingly poor results collected in 2013 and voluntarily sent in to the Barn Owl Trust. 2014 was also an unusual year for Barn Owls so we invited folk to send in their results once again

Collectively, the amount of effort that has gone into gathering this information is immense and the authors are keen to acknowledge all those who contributed their data.
