Speyside - Short-eared Owl

Short-eared Owls were virtually a daily encounter on Mull but yielded only very distant record shots. A location not too far from Grantown-on-Spey, parked on the roadside, produced a much closer display!

I could watch these all day!


Scouring the terrain for prey......


Taking a closer look?




Taking me by surprise crossing the road!


But flying much closer to the car!


A couple of flaps.....




And then gone.....
