Animal rescue officer Helen Chapman was called out to two owlets who’d been spotted in Rochdale, Lancashire, just minutes apart. An experienced RSPCA rescuer could hear mum in a tree calling for them nearby so she kept them warm and safe in a cardboard box before placing them at the base of their tree where they managed to climb back up to their mum. Healthy owlets have fluffy brown feathers and pink eyelids. They go through a ‘branching’ phase where they leave their best but can’t fly. Adults use calls to locate them and feed them on the ground. Owlets can climb vertically back up trees into their nests so you should leave them where they are unless they’re in immediate danger, in which case please call the RSPCA for further advice.
