The owls

We are the proud owners of 14 delightful owls. They belong to 5 different species, none of which is native to this country so can’t be released.

All our owls love visitors so while you’re here, why not pay them a visit.

Our longest term resident is our European Eagle Owl Montie. Montie came to us as a chick and we are the only family she has ever known. Montie once lived with us in the house as this is the best way to imprint on them as owlets. She has known us for over 10 years and could live to be 50!

Grizzle and Earl are our Great Grey Owls.  They were introduced to each other in 2016 and have been friends ever since. Grizzle has been with us for some time and came as a male. Following DNA testing, we discovered that Grizzle is in fact a female and she and Earl are now a true pair.

Skye, Horatio and Heidi are our Burrowing Owls.  We rescued Skye and Horatio from very poor living conditions in 2015 and they have  settled really well, and we welcomed Heidi in April of this year. They are excellent parents, but they do shout a lot!


Recent additions are a group of 5 Southern White Faced Scops Owls, Henry and his 4 wives Gladys, Iris, Mavis and The Other One. They came to us early in 2016 as an established group and have settled really well. They display some very interesting behaviours and a range of vocalisations.

Harvey is our newest owl and is an Asian Brown Wood Owl native to South Asia, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. These owls are closely related to Britain’s native Tawny Owls.

Harvey has come to us as a mate in waiting for Marmite. We will wait for him to mature before putting them together though.


The owls get as much pleasure from looking at you, as you will get from looking at them.

There is also lots of other wildlife at

The Falcon House.
