I caught this shot one early summers evening in the North Pennines. I was out looking for nesting waders such as curlew and redshank, and had focused my attention on an oystercatcher perched and posing nicely on a dry stone wall.
As I peered through the lens I watched its relaxed demeanour become increasingly tense until it actually flinched and took to the air. I was certain it wasn’t me, and when I looked up from my camera, I saw the cause.. the light brown flash of a swooping short-eared owl. I watched it give up on the oystercatcher and caught this shot of it quartering the heather moor looking for more suitable prey. Cumbria, England UK.
