I'm far from being an expert, but I believe this is a pair of birds 'playing' together just after leaving their roost before they head off to hunt. I think it's the female that's upside down here (they're larger and have a creamy head).

A bit later on in the Spring they do some bonding displays when they pass each other bits and pieces in mid air, but I've never seen that.

Too much Oly gear.
