Project Owl

We have had some great views of Short-eared Owls on recent Mull Evening Tours. The partially diurnal species appears to be breeding on Mull in more localised numbers again this season.

Mull, Isle of Mull, Nature Scotland, Mull Wildlife,

Data collected for Bird Atlas (2007-11) has shown a worrying contraction in geographical range, and decline in abundance for Short-eared Owl. This species shows the second greatest decrease in absolute number of 10-km squares in Scotland between 1988/91–2008/11. The BTO urgently needs to learn more about their ecology and movements outside of the breeding season.

How can you help? -
