Several noisy Shorty vs Shorty & Shorty vs Crow airborne battles
Elsewhere, Shorty chasing Shorty, chasing it following every twist & turn - after seeing it off the 'victor' completed 2 bursts of underwing clapping in quick succession.
This bird was easily identifiable, regularly patrolling this area & aggressive to 2 other individuals.
Most surprising was when we broke off to shadow a Roe Doe as she belted over the open ground !
Finally another field held a quartering bird which hovered with talons dangling - it circled & did the same again - through the scope a feisty little Weasel up on its hind legs.... the owl left empty handed !
