Two burrowing owlets have taken over one keeper's life at Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire. They were hatched in an incubator and have had to be hand-reared. Jimmy Robinson is giving them round-the clock care.
The pair have been nicknamed Linford and Christie in honour of the Olympics. They come from North and South America where they live in underground burrows that have been dug out by prairie dogs and ground squirrels. Unlike most owls they are active during the day
They were hatched at the Hawk Conservancy Trust in Andover in February and are just over six weeks old. When they are older they will join other birds of prey in the Hunters of the Sky display at Longleat
