Dead Barn Owls!

Found my second dead Barn Owl in as many weeks today, the first at West Sedge Moor was freshly dead and emaciated presumably at this time of year a result of an injury preventing efficient hunting and the second today near Muchelney had only one leg so also presumably found feeding itself difficult.
Unlike many previous birds which were the result of collisions with vehicles these were both some distance from any roads.
Sad day given I have only seen one live bird this year!
