Meet Finn & Orla
With their distinctive heart-shaped face and ghostly appearance, barn owls are perhaps our most recognised owl. Catching a glimpse of one silently flying low over field or hedgerow at dusk is a magical moment.
We're so pleased to be able to bring you our new live feed so you can get to know Finn and Orla - a successful breeding pair of barn owls living in the Blackdown Hills. (Warning: it's addictive!)
If we want to still see beautiful creatures such as barn owls in the future, we need to make sure we look after the places they call home. We hope they connect you to nature, entertain you and inspire you to take action for nature where you live!
This is live, unedited footage of barn owls. So we can ensure our streaming is uninterrupted, given the huge volume of people who tune in, the feed will automatically close down after 15 minutes on your device. You can refresh the page and it will come back in an instant! This means we can make sure that there are ‘real’ people viewing and the system isn’t overloaded. On occasion, we may experience technical issues. If we do, you can be assured we will be fixing as fast as we can. In some cases, refreshing the page works.
The livestream equipment and installation has been kindly funded by the Heritage Emergency Fund.
