Barn Owl Pellets
by Alex White
My mum was out walking the dogs the other evening when a Barn Owl flew over her head. She noted where it landed and came home to tell me.
The next day we went out and searched around the bottom of the tree, realising that this must be a regular roost as the ground surrounding the tree was littered with owl pellets in varying stages of decomposition.
On closer inspection the grass and fallen logs close to the tree were scattered with tens of skulls and bones from previous pellets.
