Barn Owl Cam
A special camera is set up at Wirral Country Park to monitor the habitat and habits of our very own Barn Owls.
Live footage, updated every 5 minutes, is fed from four camera views and there are video highlights of the best footage.
There is also a diary page displaying almost two years worth of weekly events in the life of a barn owl.

- Declines in the UK population have been mainly due to changes in agriculture but also due to a loss of traditional nest sites
- On Wirral the barn owl population is now recovering.
- Barn owls eat mice, voles and shrews that they can detect using sound alone.
