The short-eared owls have not yet headed to the hills and so make a great subject on sunny afternoons.I managed to find two different female kestrels in fairly quick succession the other day under some crisp clear blue skies.
I seem to have a lot of raptors crossing my path recently. Not that I am complaining as it is always good to watch a bird of prey at close quarters.
Buzzards seem to be everywhere and often on a journey to work I might see six different birds. They are quite predictable and will often perch in the same spot for several days running.
The first bird giving me the eye.and the second bird later in the day; an interesting comparison of how the quality of the light changes and softens as the sun dips.and another bird in the very last of the afternoon light.
