Watch the wild Barn Owls in our Isle of Man nest box - live! We are grateful to Adam and Bill Denard, Michael Howland, the landowners and to Sure Isle of Man for making this possible.
At night, the nestbox might be empty as the pair are often out hunting. During the day when they are roosting, they can sit almost motionless and you need to watch carefully for movement!
