Rub-a-dub-dub, owl gets a good scrub
This poor tawny owl was covered from head to toe in sticky, black engine oil after she toppled into an old feeding trough. Urgh, how awful – I absolutely hate getting my feathers dirty!
Sue Levings, wildlife administrator at RSPCA East Winch said: “This poor owl had really been through the wars.”
All scrubbed and clean again, this tiny tawny has now been released back into the wild.
Ahh, I do love a happy ending!
