Look out for short-eared owls! My neighbour Bill Alexander had one flying through his garden at head height last week. I had one at Wormiston Farm at the weekend. And now John has had them coming in off the sea today. Short-eared owls hunt by day, aren’t particularly shy and are very obvious as they fly on stiff wings with a very clear flat faced owl silhouette. They will be over Crail again in broad daylight. Look out particularly for crows or the gulls making a fuss and look at what they are chasing.
