TAUNTON, ENGLAND - AUGUST 28: Rescued young tawny owls perch on a branch as they wait to be released back into the wild at the RSPCA West Hatch Wildlife Centre on August 28, 2012 in Taunton, England. Between January and the end of July, 33 of the baby birds were taken to the RSPCA centre in Somerset for care, a large increase on previous years. Although the exact reason for this rise is unclear, it is thought the topsy-turvy weather conditions and some extremely windy days through the spring and summer may have contributed.
