Where? Near Colacu or Bobeci? And were you lucky to record this rare moment?

Yes I shot very little because it scared me and flew in thick forest.

As you see, it is very shy red-listed species. I was lucky to observe it for half an hour, when searching for a prey. Maybe he noticed me, but he was completelly focused on hunting the rodents.
