Scotland Day 5 - Raptor finale

A nice end to the day with a post dinner Owl watch.  Richard Pegler had been checking a nearby site over the previous evenings and we were pretty confident for Shorties but first bird of note was a fly through male Hen Harrier. (Given the distance - bigger images than usual!!)

The Short-eared Owl took us by surprise as it appeared from the opposite side of the road!

It didn't stay long either - another fly through!

The sun nearly peeked out briefly!

Not a bad end to the day :-)
