Got out again tonight and was thrilled to see the Barn owls out hunting again, I did not see them catch anything in the short photographic window of light I had.
I never get bored watching these stunning raptors, there were 3 all in the same field tonight.

A truly amazing long distance shot - would have liked to have been there myself, but with this image I feel as though I was.
