Dedicated to UK Little Owl research and conservation
The UK's Little Owl population is rapidly declining. We want to help our Little Owls. So, we've launched a project dedicated to UK Little Owl research and conservation.
You can read our aims here. We want to further our understanding of UK Little Owl ecology. We support, develop & promote new and existing UK Little Owl research and conservation projects. We're already working with a number of owl projects.
We’re really keen to find out where you're spotting Little Owls. This information helps bird groups to install nest boxes close to sightings. Have you seen or heard a Little Owl recently? We'd love for you to report your sightings here. We've included an automatic GPS option so you can add your sightings in the field. Not seen a Little Owl before? Read our spotter's guide for tips on where you can see them.
Please follow our blog and @UKLittleOwls for regular research and conservation news, advice on how you can help your local Little Owls, and project updates. Emily recorded a Little Owl breeding attempt in 2015; you can watch videos via our blog.
This project was established by Dr Emily Joáchim with the kind assistance of Andy Rouse. Emily runs this project and has studied UK Little Owls since 2008. We'd love for you to support our work − you can find out more here. You can donate here.
This is a volunteer-led project. We work hard to raise awareness of the Little Owl’s decline in the UK. We actively encourage more people to monitor this charismatic owl and to record their UK Little Owl sightings. Our blog gives advice on how you can help UK Little Owls, we provide breeding season updates and we share relevant research. We want to be able to continue this work.
We would like to develop a Little Owl prey identification guide, a downloadable Little Owl nest box design template and a leaflet with advice on how to manage habitat for Little Owls. We have been asked to host the 7th International Little Owl Symposium in the UK in 2018.
We accept donations through PayPal. If you would like to help us, please click the Donate button below. Please get in contact with Emily if you would like to sponsor the UK Little Owl Project.More Information
