An Evening with the Raptors

Here are some more of the shots from last night. The sunset was not the most spectacular but it did give us some great evening light. We were surprised how many gulls there were in the field that was being mowed. Some of them literally had to move or get run over. There were plenty of owls and harriers, out and about but most were way off in the fields, where they were hard to focus on.We saw some incredible acrobatics from the owls. I am not sure if it was an adult teaching a juvenile to hunt or them just playing, but, wow! We managed to catch lots of low flying during the hunt and we think a few catches.
