Observation details

Two individuals circling low over the slope of the hill, seen while I was waiting for the bus. I believe this is a very unusual sighting, as this is otherwise a rare lowland species. Potentially an altitudinal record (~1900m). On the top right of the first picture is the brown falcon.
