On 26 October 1992, a Short-eared Owl captured a vole in a field, and was immediately attacked by an Eurasian Kestrel Falco tinnunculus. It dropped its prey, which was retrieved by the Kestrel before it even had the chance to reach the ground. An adult male Eurasian Sparrowhawk Accipiter nisus captured a Blackbird and took the screaming bird to a nearby puddle where it drowned the bird while standing on top of it with spread wings for several minutes.
