Back Home



I was able to reunite this Little Owl with mum after a well-meaning, bit mistaken, member of the public picked it up off the ground thinking that it needed rescuing. Provided the bird is not injured, it is more than capable of climbing back up a tree using its beak and claws and, more often than not, the parent birds know where the youngsters are. The same applies to young Tawny Owls, which are also prone to being found on the ground as well.
Gladly this youngster should now be able to fledge successfully now that he is back home.
