two orphaned baby burrowing owls, nicknamed linford and christie, have moved into the home of their keeper Jimmy Robinson. The owlets were hatched in an incubator at longleat safari park, wiltshire, and are now being hand-reared by jimmy. the native american birds, which get their name from living in small burrows in the wild, can find plenty of nooks and crannys about his flat to hide. “tea cups and bookcases are a particular favourite,” says jimmy, “but it’s good to see them developing their natural behaviour and they always seem to find me at meal times.” – telegraph | via apsies
