The barn owl and kestrel, mid-fight.<br />
<br />
Brawling birds in nest ding dong...<br />
<br />
The gloves were off and the feathers were flying as these two birds of prey went wing-to-wing over a nesting box.<br />
<br />
This incredible footage shows a kestrel and a barn owl fighting it out for the prime spot to lay their eggs.<br />
<br />
The pair circle their boxing ring, staring each other down before attacking with talons and beaks in the hour-long stand-off.<br />
<br />
The bird brawl was captured by wildlife photographer Robert Fuller on a nestcam he had set up inside a 13ft-high old elm tree stump.
