Seen a Barn Owl recently?

When it comes to submitting records to the group, it’s not only dedicated nest-watchers and passionate birdwatchers that can make a difference to the conservation of Barn Owls in Gloucestershire. In fact, it’s the sightings that the casual observer might have on their drive home from work, or on an evening stroll, that are perhaps the most likely to help in identifying previously unknown birds. Once birds are known about, it then becomes possible to engage with landowners, monitor numbers and ultimately to protect the species and its habitats. We’re grateful for all sightings, whether they be chance encounters or concerted studies, so please do help us to build on the group’s existing knowledge by submitting your sightings.
