Welcome to my Barn Owl LIVESTREAM, my cameras are very busy with wildlife and run 24/7. The barn owls found around my home; Gylfie, Hans, Grete, Howard and Bronte.

Gylfie is spending most of her time with an unknown male in Ash stump, and Beech stump is booked out by the tawny owls most days.

Kestrels are often on the feeding post and there are sightings of other barn owls all around.

Sadly, Drax had to returned to Jean at Ryedale Rehabilitation Centre and is currently on a programme of 2 x antibiotics, 1 x anti inflammatory and she has been wormed. Despite this sad news, she is on the up!

Backstory: Despite being a bad year, Gylfie (female) and Barney (male) raised a single chick in their first brood - Solo. Solo stayed in the nest until Gylfie had her second brood of three eggs.
Solo increasingly showed interest in the new brood and unfortunately ended up stealing a chick (video here: https://youtu.be/8HmTmcWW54o) Solo returned once but was promptly chased away (video here: https://youtu.be/-RmWMOgy9-Y) and has not since returned to the nest, and is seldom on the stream.
The two remaining female chicks, Hans and Grete developed well and it is such a privilege to witness the journey of these beautiful birds as they grew from adorable balls of fluff to young adults. At two months old, Jean Thorpe, who is licensed, came to ring the chicks on their right legs (video here: https://youtu.be/43xAGch_dJA ).
Hans and Grete developed well, feeding often, a mix of wild prey such as voles along with the dead day-old chicks (a by-product of the egg-laying industry) I provide. As they grew they became increasingly interested by the outside world and we caught the moment Hans experienced her first glimpse of the outside world (video here: https://youtu.be/co10DCm9nFI) .
They slowly started to sit on the nest entrance, staring out until they were ready to fledge. On 6/10/20, Hans was pulled out of the nest by our resident tawny owl, Bomber, resulting in me going down to the nest and placing Hans back into the nest (video here: https://youtu.be/HcTrJmPNx58 ) .
On 11/10/20 Hans and Grete semi fledged, Hans had left the nest on her own on the 6/10/20. We refer to it as semi fledging if they leave the nest but then return later, and both Hans and Grete would frequently return to the nest to sleep and feed. They are still doing extremely well and can often be seen on our streams both together and individually, regularly visiting the feeding post.


On the 19/10/20 I received a rescue barn owl named Howard (video here: https://youtu.be/lhB8Om-C3pA ). I introduced him into the elm nest with Hans and Grete the next day (20/10/20) ( https://youtu.be/zNQ9eDve_BY ) but unfortunately this re-introduction didn’t go to plan, Hans took a surprising dislike to Howard so with safety as a top priority I removed Howard. He was placed into our barn owl tower the next day (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNQ9eDve_BY). Howard is now doing extremely well and can often be seen spending his days in the Sycamore Stump. Howard has a ring on his left leg.


Less than two weeks later (01/11/20), I got another rescue barn owl (female) from near Drax power station, aptly named Drax. Drax weighed a very low 300g. After spending a day in a small nest box I placed Drax into the Barn owl tower.
After having spent time with Jean at Ryedale Rehabilitation for antibiotics for a respiratory infection, Drax has now returned (19/11) and is in barn owl tower for some monitoring.


Sadly, we have not seen Barney since the 23/10/2020, I unfortunately don’t think that he will return, I am not sure what has happened to him, but this would be extremely unusual behaviour if he was still in the surrounding area.
