Barn Owl (Shamraig Caillagh-oie)

The pair appear to have adopted the nestbox once again and appear to be making preparations for 2019’s nesting season.

We remain most grateful to Adam and Bill Denard, Michael Howland, the landowners, Sure Isle of Man and the generosity of a number of individual donors for making this exciting project possible.


Earlier in the season, the Manx BirdLife team installed a second web cam outside the nest box. This will give excellent views of the young birds coming and going from the nest box, before they finally leave for good to make their own way in life.
