I recently had the lovely experience of rehabilitating a barn owl that
had become dreradfully tangled in "love grass' burrs. Cleaning took 2
hours of painstaking work then, on the advice of D.E.N.R. expert Ian
Falconberg (lovely name, eh?), I fed it up for 10 days before release.
Did you know they happily consume 6 mice per day! There is considerable
concern about poisoning them during attempts to control mouse plagues.
