In the British Isles, Barn Owls usually select from one of three types of nest site: the insides of buildings, large tree cavities and rock cavities. The owl’s plumage has very little oil and is therefore easily waterlogged, so in areas that are predominately wet - such as Devon - 95% of nest sites are in buildings and in dryer areas - such as Suffolk - 70% nest in trees.
