The barn owl (including any dependent young) is protected under Schedule 1 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended). This makes it an offence to kill or injure barn owls, take or destroy their eggs, or damage or destroy their nests. Their inclusion in Schedule 1 of the Act also provides protection against disturbance while nesting or when they have dependent young.
Barn Owls prefer a mixed farming habitat with spinneys, ditches, rough pastures and well-managed field margins. Grassland makes good hunting ground
