Two young barn owls rescued by the RSPCA have settled into a happy life at a hawk and owl trust in Sculthorpe.
The owls were rehabilitated at the East Winch RSPCA Rescue Centre last summer after being found by members of the public after falling from their nests.
The RSPCA released them at the Hawk and Owl Trust's Sculthorpe Moor Nature Reserve last autumn and they now appear to have settled together to breed.
In June three chicks were spotted at their potential nesting site, along with an unhatched egg.
Nigel Middleton at the Trust said: 'Due to the amazing generosity of visitors to the Sculthorpe reserve we were able to provide supplementary food for the young birds during this difficult time.'
