Barn owl unable to fly


Recommended Posts

On my run this morning I came across an adult barn owl that was unable to get sufficiently airborne to fly. Every time I was within 45 yards it would take off get 5ft off the ground and either crash into a hedge or coast a couple of hundred yards onto the ground. I didn’t want to get too close to it incase it was well but struggling with a large lunch, will keep my eyes open for it tomorrow though.

Apologies, have just seen these replies. I looked for it the next morning but couldn’t find any trace. My main concern is secondary poisoning if someone has been putting out rat poison. 

Good to see you're on the ball!   :w00t:

Saw the barn owl doing the same thing this morning about 400m from the first place. Doubting that it is poisoned or seriously ill if it has lasted this long, but just looks to weird. 

Scared of flying?   :cool1:
