Dead Owl

A dead bird of prey, probably a juvenile little owl (Athene noctua).  It was in some bushes beside a small road in Reading University (here), and had probably been hit by a car.

Zoe tells me that some young little owls have recently been seen in the area so I conclude that this was probably one of them.
