A merry note, as William Shakespeare once wrote. Barn Owls, Little Owls and Tawny Owls are all resident on the farm and are regularly being spotted by our guests, to their great enjoyment.

The Barn Owls (our absolute favourite) have had a another successful season, managing to rear two owlets in the hay barn. Late evening or very early morning are the best times to spot them hunting along the hedgerows and over the long grass. The Little Owls are also doing better than ever, such a bold and cheeky personality, it really does bring a smile to your face if you get to see them close up.

If anyone manages to see the Tawny Owl then perhaps we will give them a special prize! Generally to be found sitting in an ivy covered tree with only his eyes to be seen, their mottled brown body is very well camouflaged, however, if you listen carefully you may well hear their distinctive call of a night.
