If you've been following me recently either on here on on Facebook you'll know that we have been caring for a Little Owl that our dog Betty picked up as a chick in the fields. 'Bill' could only have been hours old, unable to stand and with his eyes closed. 

We got advice on what the best thing to do with him and hand feed him till he was able to do it for himself. Jon built him an owl house and he's been in that in an avery in the garden for the last two weeks until in was strong enough to fly. We set him free last week, moved the owl house up the tree and waited and hoped he might find his way home! And he has!

And here's a photo of him with his eyes closed, who knew owls had fluffy eyelids?!
