Cornwall - I found two birds only a few minutes from home in an industrial sector. A large open undeveloped weedy area undoubtedly has plenty of meadow voles to keep them going. This bird was perched on a pole and headed down to attempt a capture. It wasn't successful but rather than returning immediately it stayed for five minutes. Because it wasn't that far out from the car I got some nice shots.

  1. In this case the bird hovered over a spot for about 10 seconds before realizing that it didn’t have a target. I rarely see that type of action because it usually makes contact.
