A baby owl who got blown out of his tree was rescued by a passing police patrol.
Officers spotted the disoriented young bird earlier today, sitting in the middle of the road.
They took it into protective custody while they called the RSPCA for advice.
Experts told them to put the bird back to near where it was found, so they placed it carefully in a field beside the road.
One officer tweeted: 'Productive shift #greatsupport #7183 #7631 highlight rescuing a baby owl.' Over the last few days, Breckland officers have given one driver a speeding ticket after he was caught doing 80mph in a 30mph limit at Toftwood, near Dereham.
