A barn owl who was rescued last month has been released back into the wild ‘fully healthy and fighting fit once again’.
‘Barny’, the male barn owl, was rescued by PCSO Jonathan Hall on March 11.
Jon took Barny home over night and nourished him, and kept him safe.
He was taken the following day by the RSPB to an appropriate medical environment where he was nurtured.
On Wednesday (20) Jon Hall and PCSO Emma Graves took Barny back to where he was rescued, and released him back into the wild.
