Meet the stars of our Barn Owl webcam
Our owlets were ringed on Tuesday 9th July by BTO (British Trust for Ornithology), they hold the required licenses to handle Barn Owls. Our owlets are now 7 weeks old and most are ringed around this stage. Owl ringing provides important information that underpins conservation work for owls in the same way as for all other birds. Records of great longevity show that ringing has no impact on the birds’ health or survival.
