Send Us Your Barn Owl Sightings

Please send in your sightings of barn owls and help us to monitor the numbers of barn owls in Somerset.

A grid reference is vital. You can easily pin point your sighting location using this website: Just "enter a place" that was near your sighting (box top left), pin point where you saw the barn owl and click on either map, then just read off the grid reference from the box (bottom right). All we need is the two letters, then 5 numbers, then other 5 numbers.

 You can find a grid reference using this website: Format: ST 111 222 or ST 11111 22222 (6 or 10 figures are great)
