Sunday 16th September 2007
I went with my friend Phil down to Nonsuch in search of the Kestrels and once again we didn't see one!There were plenty Jays, a few Stock Doves and Green Woodpeckers as well as some over head Gulls. We saw 20 species all together. Other good birds were Goldcrest, Chiffchaff (heard) and a Nuthatch also heard.But guess what we saw!The Hobby! We started walking down the field when we heard a long, sad sounding 'kaaa kaaaa kaaaa kaaaa'. Then we saw a streamlined falcon fly straight over our heads, fantastic. This was at around 8:50am. We saw it again with a Sparrowhawk at around 10:20am.Unfortunately, we didn't get any photos of anything really, apart from a crow.
