A Norfolk wildlife centre has been over-run with baby owls that have been injured or abandoned.
So far this year staff at the RSPCA's East Winch Wildlife centre near King's Lynn have cared for 32 Owlets.
The increase in numbers happens every summer with birds being handed in because they've either been orphaned or injured.
The centre is currently looking after 643 mammals and birds.
As well as the young owls, the centre is currently looking after:
- 170 ducklings
- 41 gulls
- 56 hedgehogs
- 35 swans
- 200 fledgling birds
When the owlets arrive, staff begin to feed them, gradually reducing their contact with the birds so they don't become connected. This allows them to cope when they are released back into the wild.
If you see an animal you have concerns about after observing it for some time, call the RSPCA's emergency line on 0300 1234999.
