Timed a Barn Owl
Travelling back towards Docking from Burnham Market yesterday, we saw a barn owl hunting the rank vegetation by the side of the road. The owl pounced on a small mammal and flew off in front of the car, it didn't want to fly over the tall hedgerow that flanked the verge and so flew parallel to the road and our car allowing us to record its flight speed at 22mph with vole.
