Baby barn owls have been making themselves at home in Cardigan town.

A youngster was spotted on scaffolding outside Belotti`s delicatessen last week, and was happy to pose for pictures taken by delighted shoppers.

Maria Belotti said three or four young birds may be nesting in the area, and had been heard by local residents.

She said: “It just stayed there while people took pictures. It’s not something that you see everyday. It’s nice to know they are in town.”
