A brave bird has found an unusual place to make its nest this winter – in the mouth of a terrifying dinosaur.

Nestling in between the huge teeth of a pretend T-Rex, this tawny owl has been sighted several times by staff at Knebworth House.

Lytton Enterprises managing director Martha Lytton Cobbold said: “We are delighted that the owl has set up home in the T Rex. Our gardens team are keeping an eye on him.”

Tim Hill, conservation manager for the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust, said: “It looks as if the owl is taking advantage of a great roost in a top location – high up and safe, with lots of opportunities to find food when visitors have left the park at night.”
