There were a couple of tawny owls calling to each other on either side of Marketgate early evening today. Their contact call is a loud “kee-wick” rather than than the more classic quavering hoot that everyone knows. The pair breeds behind the Kirk, in Beech Walk Park or in Denburn; they start early with some eggs being laid in mid-February. So the pair tonight were probably getting things ready. I was very pleased to hear them – species no. 96 for the Crail year list.
