Welcome to HBOG
The Herefordshire Barn Owl Group is a voluntary group working to increase the breeding populations of 3 species of raptor in Herefordshire. The Barn Owl, Little Owl and Kestrel have all suffered declines in recent years.
Our aims are to provide nesting boxes for all 3 species and work with farmers to enhance and maintain habitat.
A Monitoring Programme will involve monitoring the nest boxes, egg counts, taking biometrics, ringing both juveniles and adults, recording other species using the boxes and pellet analysis.
