UK man has amazingly close encounter with wild owl

A walker from West Yorkshire had an unforgettably close encounter with a wild owl on Sunday (April 4).

Leon Thompson set off for an early morning walk in Wyke and spotted the beautiful tawny owl sitting on a low roof.

Thompson whipped out his camera and began filming and was amazed when the bird stayed put even as he got right up close.

"Wow, amazing. It's just staring at me," Thompson says in the clip.
