In winter some – normally a few - Northern Hawk-Owls visit Denmark for 4-5 months. I have followed one of this year's visitors in Kongelunden (a small wood close to Copenhagen) from November 22, 2016. The owl is day-flying and not very shy. It is my impression, that the owl's food here in Denmark is mice and only that.
It's hard – in any case to me – to capture the owl in flight, but I have got a few acceptable shots.
