Little Owl
The Little owl (Athene noctua) is, as its name suggests, a small owl. Little owls were introduced to the UK in the nineteenth century and the species is now resident throughout most of England (except the south west) and parts of South and North Wales but not Scotland or Ireland. They nest in cavities such as in this tree.
