A tawny owl has been named Lucky after clinging to the front of a train for a journey of more than 300 miles.
The bird was found below the driver's cabin of the Class 66 locomotive as it pulled into Stobart's freight terminal in Crick, Northamptonshire.
It is thought he had been clinging on since the train set off from Mossend, near Glasgow.
Lucky is now recovering from a sprained wing at Nuneaton and Warwickshire Wildlife Sanctuary.
"It's a miracle, really," said sanctuary owner Geoff Grewcock.
