South Sebastopol

Main Sighting: Kestrel
Probably due to the thick fog this morning pushing migrant birds lower down but woke up to a Cuckoo early hours this morning. It certainly got me out of bed and ready to bird my patch along the Canal to which I found a male Kestrel hunting in the Meadows. I kind of wished I didn't see the Kestrel as these fields will all be houses soon. Male Sparrowhawk also hunting along Canal hedgerows.
