Little owls were introduced into the UK in the 19th century and are now listed as a native species. Although they are not globally threatened numbers in Europe have been decreasing over recent years. The reason is as yet unknown.
Little owls are crepuscular hunting their small prey at dawn and dusk and can be seen sitting on fences or branches with a distinctive head bobbing action.
Unusually for an owl they also known eat to plant material and berries.
We have bred little owls in recent years and hope to do so again.
