How to create good Barn Owl habitat:
- Create patches or strips of rough grassland with a high Field Vole population.
- Rough grassland is a thick, matted, tussocky mix of native grass species.
- Get down on your knees, part the grass, and make sure it has a good litter layer at least 7cm (3″) deep.
- Make sure the land is more than 1km from the nearest motorway, dual carriageway or similar fast open-plan road.
