Barn Owl Remains
Severed barn owl beak and feathers (Tyto alba). Dorset, UK. At least that's our best guess. Found near a fenceline in open fields on the Middlebere peninsula across from Arne. A peregrine kill maybe? Would a buzzard take an owl? Possibly the predator tore the beak off as a safety precaution...
