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.....
