Thousands of starlings surround a lone bird of prey which had swooped down to pick off a straggler. "Starlings have a very particular way of defending themselves from their predators like falcons and harriers. They form a large tightly packed flock and mob their enemy, scaring it off, frequently expanding and contracting and changing shape."
A jaw-dropping moment (at least it was for the fish)
Aw, careful, those claws are a bit sharp! Just minding my own business and along comes this bird and snatches me out of my happy place! OSPREY catching a fish. Check out the Dyfi Osprey Project in West Wales on google and/or YouTube. jp
Eagle Owl - Just started a board called "Raptor Love" I will be starting to pin all raptor pictures (owls, hawks, eagles etc) on that board very soon. Just wanted to give you all a heads up :) Please follow! I don't want you to miss out on the raptors :)
