BARN OWL TRUST CAM

Welcome to Barncam – this is a view of a specially adapted Barn Owl Trust nestbox in a barn in Cornwall (UK). If you’re patient, you should be able to see adult Barn Owls coming and going and eventually watch the young owls fledging. You can also try Nestcam, which is a close up view inside the nestbox. The cameras and the images are kindly provided to the Trust free of charge by The Web Broadcasting Corporation.

Wild Barn Owls have been nesting at this site since 1994 and most years they have been successful. However, please be aware that they are in the wild at a remote location and we’re not in control of what happens to them! It is natural for some of the eggs to fail and some of the nestlings to die and we cannot be held responsible for this.

Survival and nesting success are largely controlled by food supply and encouraging the creation of prey-rich habitat is one of the most important things that the Barn Owl Trust does. Hopefully the owls will do really well this year and you’ll really enjoy watching them.

Wub The cams are back on in the nest and the barn. Earlier I saw one in the nest with two pellets. Just now the nest is empty and there is one on the right rail.

Hope it will be another good season! I will miss Val and Hazel at the sanctuary.

February 2010

12th - the female has been roosting in the nest box all day today. Two fresh pellets are clearly visible on last year’s nest debris.

11th - the pair were seen copulating last night.

10th - a Barn Owl has been sitting on the back and front rafters for over a week now and this evening one is staying longer than usual.

9th - the pair were again visible on Barncam in the evening, when mutual preening occurred.

7th – at about 6pm both individuals were seen in the nestbox barn for probably the first time since last autumn. One of the birds (the female?) went into the box. The remaining bird then stayed in the barn for a couple of hours. This is the first time the birds have ventured back to the nest site this year raising hopes of another successful breeding season. We therefore thought it might be nice to stream Nestcam as early as possible so viewers get to see the whole process, including pre-laying behaviour.
