The conversion to mono adds to the atmosphere of the environment, The night hunter ready to quarter his territory, listening for that tell tale sound in the grass. It’s such a privilege to sit and watch these magnificent birds hunting.

(Via: British Bird Lovers) “A kestrel and a barn owl had a spectacular mid-air fight as one tried to steal the other’s lunch. The adult owl had successfully caught a vole and was flying off to enjoy its hunt when the kestrel launched its frenzied attack to get the food. Alan Wennington captured the action while photographing the barn owl at Cresswell on the Northumberland coast.”
