Owls at Ascot Station


On Friday afternoon I was waiting for my train at Ascot when I noticed this owl pellet on the platform, just beside a lamp-post.  During the previous night, an owl must have alighted on the lamp-post to regurgitate the hard, indigestible parts of the animals it had eaten.  The pellet appears to mostly consist of beetle wing-cases, and the hair and bones of a small shrew or mouse.  You can see the shoulder blades of the latter in the lower left corner of the photo.
