Discover: Barn owl
The barn owl's ghostly silent flight, together with its heart-shaped face directing the sounds of prey, makes it an excellent hunter of the night.
Can you spot: Barn owls can be seen year round at dusk and dawn, look out for them hunting from fence posts or in low flight over farmland and hedgerows.
Did you know: Barn owls swallow their prey whole, bones, teeth, feathers and all, then regurgitate the indigestible parts in the form of large pellets.
