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!

Our Barn Owls are wild birds. They are free to come and go. If you are looking at the live feed above and the nestbox is empty, or if you simply wish to enjoy some of the action we have previously recorded, take a look at these clips:
