The second of two shots taken at a local falconry, indeed I featured this bird once before. The European Eagle Owl was a native of Britain until the latter part of the 19th Century and became extinct here largely as a result of man’s persecution. Eagle Owls are the largest of the owls and their sheer size and aggressive nature makes them the most dominant bird of prey (both nocturnal and diurnal) wherever they are found. Very occasionally they are killed by large Eagles, but more often it is they who prey on other Raptors.
