Monday 7 Nov: It's early in the morning Central African time. The sun is just starting to rise - the perfect time for little owl chicks to be heading for bed.
Not so for 'soon-to-be-named' Chick 1, who decides that now is the time to explore. Our sweet chick doesn't just choose the lip of the pot plant - it decides to climb rigt out of the pot and up the balcony pillar. Once it reaches the top of the tiny balcony pillar, it sits there looking out - ever so pleased with itself.
Have a look at this video clip showing the 'pot plant escape':
