A distant Barn Owl hunting at 3:30 pm today in Cornwall. 28th Jan 2019.



I spent some time this afternoon watching this Barn Owl quarter the wet meadows in North Cornwall.

It crashed down on what looks like a vole and spent a long time in the grass trying to despatch it before finally flying off to a perch just the wrong side of the hedge to where I stood!

I saw it again later over the reed beds hunting.... a fantastic sight.
