Tawny Owlets.

By Badgerfred
My daughter is a veterinary nurse and the female owl on the right was brought in unharmed, picked up by a man's labrador, it was the original intention to pass it on to Vale Wildlife Rescue or Secret World but we decided to do a release, another local vet had 3 tawny owls brought in so we had one of these, a male and we did a release a few months later. The owl on the right we called Bram so it made sense to call the other Stoker. I added the zoom effect to disguise the fact that they were sat on a log in a tea chest while I was converting my shed.
