This three-week-old tawny owl chick is now being looked after it was found by a woman walking her dog near Bangor University.
Rachel Taylor happens to be a research officer for the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO).
Although the BTO is not an organisation that normally rescues birds, as a licensed bird ringer she was able to safely handle the chick.
"At this age the increasingly active chicks (probably three or four in a brood) begin to explore around and outside the nest cavity and the more adventurous males do occasionally fall out of their tree" said Rachel.
"The bad weather last night and this morning meant this chick was on the ground, plumage completely soaked through and very cold – which would have been fatal – and unable to climb the tree, making it vulnerable to predators on the ground and ‘invisible’ to its parents."
The bird will now be cared for until it is fully-feathered and has learned to hunt for itself in a 'wild' environment.
It will then be released back into the wild where it was found.
