Barn Owl Rescued and Released

Last week some concerned locals found a common barn-owl (Tyto alba) by the side of a busy high-way very weak and unable to fly. He was brought into to the WFFT Wildlife Rescue Centre for treatment, after being given a health check by the vets it was found that he had no serious injuries. We named him Bernard, maybe he has been hit by a car or has lost his way, luckily he had not sustained any injuries. We decided to keep him at WFFT to observe his health and behavior, and give him some much needed food. After a week of recuperating at WFFT it was deemed time to release him back to the wild. So yesterday evening we did just that, the carry cage was opened and he flew straight out. Another successful rescue and release. Fly Free Bernard!!!
