Aerial Assassins

Deadly 360 Episode 8 of 13

Steve Backshall analyses three hunts from the amazing world of flying predators. The emperor dragonfly chases down its closely-related cousin, the damselfly, at incredible speeds. The Daubenton's bat uses sound to see in pitch black to hunt yellow underwing moths. And a kestrel uses its hovering flight and super-sensitive vision to try and locate field voles beside a busy motorway. Three predators. Three prey. Who will emerge victorious?
