We hear an awful lot from the local owls on these dark rainy nights. Tawny frogmouths lurk in the branches. Moreporks call across the valley. The odd Barn Owl flashes through the car headlights.
But nothing like these orphan Tawny owls, rescued by a British wildlife hospital, looking for all the world like something out of a children's book (more info and even cuter photos in The Daily Mail)
