Whilst working at west Aberthaw this morning we sadly came across a badly injured Barn Owl, very weak and a damaged wing. The area supervisor from Welsh Water was able to get it into a box and drove over to the Barry Hawking centre to see if they could help the poor thing. Unfortunately the prognosis wasn’t very good due to the extent of the injury and the length of time the owl had been on the ground. It had probably flown into overhead cables or the barbed wire fence surrounding the compound. I’ll phone tomorrow for any news.
