A flock of adorable baby owls are being hand-reared after they were blown off their perches by unseasonally high winds.<br />
<br />
The group of four Tawny owls are so young they should be near the nest with their family, but they were instead found flapping about on the ground.<br />
<br />
The creatures are aged between 15 and 30 days old and are too small to be able to fly or climb back up to their mothers.<br />
<br />
Volunteers at the nearby Dorset Wildlife Rescue in Lytchett Matravers near Poole, who are now looking after the birds were alerted to there where a bouts by concerned members of the public.<br />

Chris Easton, owner of the centre, is feeding them mice and chicks and even showing them how to fly by encouraging them to hop from his hand to a perch.
