We are at the time of year when all the baby Tawny owls start to hatch in the trees.
Long before these little creatures learn to fly they go exploring and walkabout on the ground and this is normal development and they are not abandoned. People often see these fluffy balls and think they have fallen out of their nests as the baby owl will shut it eyes and pretend you cant see it. Please do leave them alone as they can climb trees and Mum knows where they are at all times and often feeds them on the ground. The only time they should be picked up is if they are in danger from traffic or falling trees.
