My friend has one in Spain, he runs Birds of prey experiences. He sent me a picture of it with a Dragonfly once. 

What are you looking at catching?

Just for the record, they weigh 3oz 😮

He fed 4 grams in the morning and the rest when out in the field, then I weigh I'm to make sure his at weight when I get him back home. I do weigh him in the morning as well. I fly him most day and he has free flight in the house for 4 odd hours. They get very tame. In saying that it just grabs my Lurcher by the nose when she was asleep lol.
