I watched three Short-eared Owls patrolling Kirkgate Point at Loch Leven from 2.30pm until 3pm, when the sun disappeared and the temperature dropped.
Stunning aerial displays by the Owls. A couple would interact mid-air, and another was busy dive-bombing a Kestrel, who would fly up to try and see it off.
Here's a few photos I captured:
|Sitting in the grass (digiscoped)|
|Perching in the afternoon sun (digiscoped)|
|The perfect photo! I was willing them to fly above the castle|
