This young owl went for a 10-mile car ride stuck in the roof rack of a vehicle, before being discovered by the surprised driver who had been driving to work at a car showroom, south of Birmingham. The driver of the vehicle had left for work work before dawn and upon arriving at his destination and exiting the car he noticed a fluttering. He and a colleague had to force the stunned owl from under a roof rack bar. A wildlife sanctuary took the owl and described the owl a being very lucky to survive the ordeal. The owl has been named Birch for the business park he ended up. Birch suffered a concussion and a swollen and closed eye, but is expected to make a speedy and complete recovery, after which he will be released back into the wild. I can only add that "owls well that ends well".
