Tawny Owl, Owl Sanctuary, Festival Park, Ebbw Vale 19 June 2015
The most widespread European owl, the tawny owl (Strix aluco) looking almost, in his natural habitat at the Owl Sanctuary.

The Owl Sanctuary, at Festival Park, has been operating for fourteen years, initially against council opposition. Their remit is to rescue injured/neglected owls and other raptors, rehabilitate them and release them into the wild. Where, for some reason, this is not possible, they are looked after for life at the centre which is run by donations.
