A pair of barn owls in Somerset have become an internet sensation after a webcam was put in their nesting box.

300 thousand people already have logged on to watch Boris and Brenda at the Somerset Wildlife Trust.

Viewers have even been able to see seven baby owlets hatching.

I had neck-ache last night from so much owl watching."
