Don't you just love this face !! These owls roost on the ground and make a nest that is no more than a hollow amongst the long grass or reeds. This owl was rescued as the only surviving chick by a farmer who accidently drove over their nest whilst bailing hay. She was raised by people and thinks she is a people and cannot be released back into the wild.

Have a great day !!
