The most recognisable of the British owls, perhaps due to its crepuscular hunting habits, the Barn Owl is arguably the most beautiful and sought after owl species among wildlife photographers. We are very lucky here in Lincolnshire and have the densest population in the whole country. We hold Schedule 1 Licences for photographing at the nest and have access to both natural tree sites and derelict barns. We offer mice and chicks to our resident pair throughout the year making perched shots of this ghostly bird achievable year round.
We often have hides up at their nests during the summer for our own photography and do offer limited places under the strict supervision of the licence holder.
These birds are viewable at the following hides: The Dome Hide, The Wired Hide and The Scaffold Hide
