Erik and the Owl

news

This happy tawny owl believe it or not was being chased by a pigeon.

He flew straight into our window pane with an almighty crash and ended up unconscious and upside down in a spiky shrub.
After donning some gauntlets, I fished him out and administered someTLC. After five minutes he perked up and flew away.

This was not the end because soon the pigeon was chasing him again and this time he hit an upstairs window and fell to the ground but he recovered without help.

Owls are always perceived as wise.......this one needs a little more education!

With all the curtains drawn he has not been back for more punishment but a few days later we did find a smaller version dead on the road to Carlton Husthwaite.

This one didn't know the Green Cross Code!
