A YOUNG animal lover is helping to nurse an injured owl at Heronfield Animal Welfare .
The tawny owl was taken to the rescue centre after being hit by a car. The unlucky bird damaged its eye and broke its claw in the accident.
Bird fanciers will be pleased to hear that the owl is now on the mend and will soon be released back into the wild.
