This lovely little owl was picked up by a friend as he said it was in his garden all night and he was worried the cats were going to eat it as it was going nowhere! I contacted the raptor rescue people from the internet who gave me all sorts of advice but said basically it needed to go back to its habitat and be released to have any chance so having kept it overnight and it not eating or drinking I took it back to its territory and released it. It flew away and dissapeared. Hopefully it survived!
