A tawny owl has had a lucky escape after being hit by a vehicle on a road near Wells.
She suffered head trauma. Following the accident, the female owl was found standing by the side of the road, where a member of the public stopped and picked her up.
She's now being cared for by a Secret World Wildlife Rescue in East Huntspill.
Still in a state of shock, the owl has been put in a warm incubator to recover.
Her body weight is very good so the aim is to get her back to her home once she has recovered, as staff say she is probably ready to start nesting.
