Short eared owls

A quick trip out this evening as Mike and I really wanted to see a sort eared owl. they are flying around 8.00pm. It was such a lovely evening, warm and calm. we arrived at our chosen spot about 7.00pm a male hen harrier was lovely to see. red deer slowly appearing as the light dropped. Then there it was our first short eared owl of 2017. lovely. it landed a few times giving us the chance to get a really good look. what a lovely bird. we saw another. A classic its behind you. With Cuckoo calling, swallows flying close and a fantastic sunset it was a lovely evening.
