comes from The Gin Trap Ninja :-
adult Long-eared capturing a Reed Bunting & releasing it alive for one of its fledged young to have a pounce at.
comes from Yours truly :-
adult Long-eared following an adult Barn Owl for 10 mins. Followed every twist & turn, stopped on 3 occassions when Barnie perched up, no vocalisations, no harrassment or attacking - it was as if it was waiting for the Barn to catch something for it.
Heres a couple of this years images from J.Clarke over in Ireland :-
