    Default Barn Owl with Prey

    This one was mantling a nice big vole caught in the tussock of grass . unfortunately for me photography wise it took off with the prey but flew away from me . It transferred the prey from beak to talon in mid air and I captured the whole sequence but sadly from the wrong angle , nevertheless it was great to watch.

    Nice capture Steve, if you know where the nest is, you can work out some flight paths and intercept them if you're lucky.

    Well caught Steve. Agree with tigerburnie, I remember some years ago when I was filming our target was always flying in the wrong direction. After locating the nest site we re-position the platform and got head on shots of both birds coming in with prey
