Gandalf the Great Grey Owl who is afraid of flying outside in big open spaces has been given an aviary inside his own red brick house.
He now spends his days watching the world go by out of his window.
"He is a bit of a wuss as he doesn't like flying in big open spaces," said owner Janet Southard, who runs the Wild Arena photography company, based inside Knowsley Safari Park near Liverpool.
"When we moved here we put him in the shed temporarily while we built his aviary outside. But he didn't want to move so now he has an aviary inside the lovely red brick shed. He loves sitting at the window and watching the other birds."
