24 September 2010

A brief seawatch this evening produced two firsts for the Autumn - three Brent Geese going north and a Snow Bunting on the beach.  This morning near the Totem Pole bushes Pete caught a brief view of a rapid flyby Cuckoo, which changed into a Hobby before settling down as a small Kestrel which bombed through with a weird flight action, straight inland.  If a Lesser Kestrel is found tomorrow in the West Midlands he will certainly have it on his list...Sean.
Hobby by carpark, Wheatear Tim.
