Little Owl
Love Owls? Why not come and learn about them

The British Owl Project

There is nothing more beautiful than to watch a Barn Owl floating silently across a meadow hunting. To hear the haunting call of Tawny Owls. To look into the determined glare of a Little Owl. To witness the amazing sight of a Short Eared Owl’s courtship flight. To look into the dynamic orange stare of a Long Eared Owl.

The British Owl Project works in the conservation of UK Owls through surveying, habitat restoration, expansion and networking, citizen science and education enabling the increased understanding of and connection with these amazing birds.

We would like to offer YOU the opportunity to be involved in Owl Conservation and species research. Whether you have been involved in conservation in the past or would like to start now.

Seen Any Owls?

Spotted Or Heard An Owls Recently?

If so, we would love to hear about it for our research!

Owls are an indicator and umbrella species and their presence and population size is an indication of the health and balance of their ecosystem and its biodiversity.

Part of our work is looking at our Owl populations and monitoring them enabling us to build a better picture of where they are, where they’re not and their behaviour. We then use this information in formulating our habitat plans.
