Where to see them
The tawny owl is nocturnal so it is often heard calling at night, but much less often seen. In the daytime, you may see one only if you disturb it inadvertently from its roost site in woodland up against a tree trunk or among ivy. Look for pellets below roosting places.
When to see them
All year round.
What they eat
Small mammals and rodents, small birds, frogs, fish, insects and worms.
