Tawny Owl pellet from Wakefield Town Centre

Colin brought an owl pellet to the field meeting at Rabbit Ings which I have since dissected and examined the contents. The pellet is from a tawny owl and was found in the garden of a house near Wakefield town centre. It contained a complete rat skull but this did not remain in one piece when the pellet was soaked in water for dissection.
