Owl pellet dissection

We are fairly sure that this is a pellet from a Tawny owl.
It is the regurgitated indigestible parts of the owls prey.

After a soaking in water and disinfectant for half an hour, the grizzly task can commence

First the big stuff

Then the smaller bones and dung beetle shells

Then examine and sort out the skeleton

Finally revealed, the remains of a wood mouse
