Short-Eared Owl Migration

Interesting to note the record of a Short-eared Owl flying west at the Farnes today surely the wrong way? Perhaps the slight headwind put it off?
The sudden increase in sightings of pairs of SEO in Northumberland over the past week has had me thinking they were probably birds returning North, passing through the county on the way back to Scotland or Scandinavia. If so then the message is fill your boots as they may not hang around too long.
