Tawny Owlet Rescue

I found this bird on Sunday morning with my 3 year old daughter on a YWT reserve and was alerted to its presence as it plummeted into the undergrowth after it was blown out of a tree in the high gusts of wind that we experienced recently. It had become tangled in thorns and did not look at its best.

After freeing it and getting a little begging call, presumably wanting to be fed, it was soon roosting quietly in a low branch, almost on the woodland floor as young Tawny Owls often seem to do.
