Tawny Owl Injured

I photographed this tawny owl roosting in its hole on Millington Pastures. It often sits there – a dusting of snow made the picture.As I drove on I spotted another tawny owl closer to the road. It’s so unusual in the daytime to see a tawny owl close up, I thought I had struck gold. But when I focussed my camera the owl’s right eye was clearly badly injured. I tried catching the owl but it was still very mobile and flew off.
Unfortunately I don’t think this one will make it through the winter. It may have been hurt fighting for territory or it could have been hit by a car.
