At the end of 2019, just before Christmas, the RSPCA East Winch Wildlife Centre approached the Hawk and Owl Trust to see if they could help with five juvenile rescue Barn Owls which they had rescued and rehabilitated earlier in the year. 

They asked if we would help prepare the locally hatched youngsters for release and we agreed to have them. The Barn Owls were housed in our new seclusion and flight aviary at Sculthorpe Moor Nature Reserve in Norfolk (which was generously funded by a local husband and wife). Over the next few weeks, the owls were supplementary fed in the aviary to get them used to their surroundings. At the beginning of March, the Trust removed the front of the seclusion aviary and the birds were released.

Since their release, the birds have been able to come and go freely. Three of the Barn Owls have remained at the reserve. The birds can be spotted hunting locally over Sculthorpe Moor.

The RSPCA have thanked us for our help and support returning the Owls to the wild where they should be.
