Summary

With its heart-shaped face, buff back and wings and pure white underparts, the Barn Owl is a distinctive and much-loved bird of the countryside. Widely distributed across the British Isles and indeed the world, this species has suffered a serious decline over the past fifty years as a result of the degradation of formerly prey-rich habitats in the face of intensive agricultural practices.

This new and completely revised edition of a classic Poyser monograph brings the Barn Owl story completely up to date. Written by the same authors - who remain the voices of authority on the species - The Barn Owl provides a fascinating record of the ebb and flow of this owl's fortunes, along with the standard Poyser treatment of breeding biology, evolution, distribution, feeding ecology and demographics.

Author Biography

Tony Warburton, Robert Byatt and Derek Bunn were the authors of the first edition of The Barn Owl and remain the accepted authorities on the species. While Byatt and Bunn are now retired, Warburton remains at the hub of UK owl conservation and is currently working with DEFRA on the impact of introduced Eagle Owls on the English countryside. He recently received an MBE for his work on owl conservation.
