Peregrine Falcon on Patch


Date: 6/10/2014
Location: Patch Walk 
Observation: Walked into Campsite within minutes spotted a Kingfisher on Newton Brook! He kept moving down brook but got a picture. 




2 Jays on walk up to dog track, and 2 dogs Springer! Saw some Crows in fields to left and something else, focused binoculars and a Peregrine Falcon came into view!! He was sat until Crows decided this was their field and chased him off. Nice, new patch tick !!



Bird had a light blue ring on left leg ,can't see number.


Very little until village where Pied Wagtails were fluttering everywhere at least 20+, not seen as many since farm shut, House Sparrows 50+ near Pigs. No Barn Swallow left. Only short walk today but worth it !


Weather: Had just rained but blue skies 
Other Species: Kingfisher, Jay, Coal Tit, Peregrine Falcon, Raven, Pied Wagtail, House Sparrow, Buzzard - of note .



Thanks for Looking !
