Welcome to the TVNR 
Barn Owl web-cam

This joint initiative between Hen Harrier Action (HHA), the Scottish Raptor Study Group (SRSG) and The Langholm Initiative was originally planned as a live hen harrier nest-cam in 2022.


Unfortunately, the chosen nest failed before we could go live.  And although there were three other active hen harrier nests on the reserve, the joint decision was made not to deploy the camera on a second nest.


Instead, we set up the camera overlooking one of the barn owl nest boxes where five owlets successfully fledged in August 2022.  


Although quiet during the day, the box was a hive of activity overnight when the adults could be seen bringing back voles to feed the hungry chicks.


The fantastic footage of the owlets can still be viewed by clicking on the webcam link above and visiting the YouTube page where you can scroll back and forth between the action on each day. 

Stop Press! We are pleased to report that a total of 13 hen harrier chicks have fledged this summer in the Tarras Valley Nature Reserve.
