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 :)
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."
The Kazakhs of the Altai mountain range in western Mongolia are the only people that hunt with golden eagles, and today there are around 400 practising falconers. Ashol-Pan, the daughter of a particularly celebrated hunter, may well be the country's only apprentice huntress.
