The Film

Owls – we’re captivated by their beauty and intrigued by their air of mystery.

This stunning series uncovers their secret life as never before, using a special camera rig to follow families of owls in a wild corner of rural Essex, through winter, spring and summer.

There’s joy and tragedy, as they battle starvation, mate, and raise young.

Finally, we follow the baby owls as they transform from cute bundles of fluff into fully-fledged adults, one clumsy leap at a time. Capturing the grace and intelligence of these wonderful animals, this series shows why owls are one of Britain’s best-loved creatures.
