Thirsty owl makes rare appearance to bathe and drink - Daily Mail
Daily Mail Published on Aug 9, 2018
A tawny owl has been seen relaxing in a pond during the recent heatwave. Artist Robert Fuller captured the rare moment on a camera set up in his Thixendale, North Yorkshire garden. The artist, who often paints the animals that visit his home, said seeing a nocturnal tawny owl in the daytime is unusual and that it is extremely rare to see one drinking by lapping up water in the way recorded. The brown owl takes beakfuls of water from the pond before swooping out of frame.
