Couple return to their farmhouse to find two tawny owls huddled up in their OVEN


Beverley and Kenneth Parker came in from the cold on Friday afternoon to discover two tawny owls in their wood burning stove

They say owls are smart – but this one appears to have been at the back of the queue when they were dishing out wisdom.
He and his mate decided to shelter from the freezing weather by popping down the flue of a wood-burning stove. Fortunately for the pair of tawny owls, the fire was unlit at the time.
They were found cosied up in the grate by Kenneth and Beverley Parker when they returned to their Suffolk farmhouse near Stowmarket after a trip away.

The Parkers once found a live pigeon in the wood burner in Suffolk

The couple released the birds back outside after closing the curtains in their room to encourage them out of the stove.
Mrs Parker, 54, said: ‘Luckily we had been out and the burner wasn’t on but if they had fallen down the other chimney, it is always lit so it wouldn’t have been such a happy ending.’
The RSPB is urging people to help birds during the cold winter months by providing food, including high calorie food like sunflower hearts, suet pellets and kitchen scraps, as well as water and shelter for birds.
