Coronavirus – Covid-19

As of 24th March the Barn Owl Trust office has been shut down to protect our staff and volunteers. Sales of nestboxes and other goods have been suspended. We apologise that we are unable to deal with post or telephone enquiries for the time being.

If you have Barn Owl questions hopefully you can find the answer on our website. There are lots of videos including ones to help you make nestboxes or tell you how to pick up and examine an injured owl.

We will try to deal with enquiries by email, social media and from the website but at this time we are not sure we will have the capacity to do this, so please be patient. Please rest assured that our resident birds are being well looked after and we will continue to receive casualties.

Stay well and thank you for your support.

UPDATE 12th May 2020 Most of our staff are still furloughed with just a core and volunteers working to ensure our essential tasks are done and our owls cared for. As new cases of Covid 19 are still being reported in our area we will continue to monitor the situation and will reopen when we feel it is safe to do so. Meanwhile we are endeavoring to keep our social media channels and Wildlife Diary updated.

We’d like to say a big thank you to those people that have continued to support us during this difficult time.
