Amazing Swooping Owls

This is the extraordinary moment a snap happy family, including a nine-year-old, captured a majestic owl turning deadly – swooping from above towards its unassuming prey. In one remarkable movement, the female owl manoeuvres round to reach out with her vicious claws towards a tiny mouse perched on a dangerous ledge. And then she dives down at an incredible pace before making off with the mouse firmly but carefully held in her mouth.
