Sponsored Charity

Communities & Forums

  We would like to introduce you to our sponsored charity Barn Owl Bill any item that is purchased via our eBid auctions we donate 10% to this charity, if you are not registered with eBid follow this link eBid is FREE to register on, below is a bit about the Barn Owl Bill charity


Back in 1988 Bill took in his first barn owl, from then onwards organisations such as the RSPCA, the RSPB and other agencies such as the Police began asking Bill to take in birds found injured or orphaned. Shortly after this bill became known as Barn Owl Bill and the work has continued under this name.

The group started to carry out display work educating and informing all sections of the community about these birds. Of the rescued birds two out of three are returned to the wild with a 98% success rate. Some however cannot be returned to the wild and they become very tame and it is these birds Bill uses for his informative presentations at local schools etc. These birds are very safe to handle and include Barn Owls, Tawny Owls and European Eagle Owls etc.

Barnowlbill is involved with the rescue and rehabilitation of owls, birds of prey and other wildlife. He is also involved with the education of others as to all aspects of these majestic creatures.

The education of the public as to the plight of Birds of Prey is a high priority for Barn Owl Bill. Few people know that many birds of prey are actually endangered.

The Barn Owl Bill sanctuary cares for any bird of prey brought to it’s attention by members of the public or any other organisation.

The birds used in Barn Owl Bill’s displays have been rescued from an early age and are therefore very tame and safe for all types of audience.

All animals are treated with respect and reverence and cared for under full veterinary supervision.

The work of BarnOwlBill relies heavily on donations, sponsorship and assistance from the general public.
