Does anybody knows a almost guarantied location to see Barn Owl around a 10 mile radios of Attleborough, Norfolk?

Many thanks in advance.

Jose,
I don't know where Attleborough is and thus can't do a 10 mile radius of it. However, there seems to be Barn Owls flying around the trees to the north of Titchwell RSPB reserve and viewable from the main path from the visitor centre to the sea (look to the left, or west if you like, about half way along the path once clear of the big trees near the information centre.

Attleborough is about 13 miles southwest-ish from Norwich.

Don't know for sure as I've never tried looking for one round that area but I do drive that way in the course of work quite a lot.

Have you tried Wayland woods ? Or some of the little back roads round New Buckenham, Banham, Tacolneston - ish.

Perhaps that area near the old disused railway bridge between Tharston & Hapton ? (sorry I've no OS for that area but there's only one ... it's on a sharp bend). There's several tussocky grassy fields there along the river / stream.
