    The owls shown in the video, are Tawny Owls. Barn Owls seen from the front are basically white with a very pronounced facial disc.

    It is sad that Dangerfield has almost vanished from our wildlife history. I was first involved in wildlife rescue at the same time, being just a year older, at a time when rescue centres were very rare. My lifelong interest being birds of prey and British native predatory mammals
