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.
