Keeping a sharp eye out

Perhaps I should as I was chatting to Bill on Monday and he told me about seeing a Hobby at Blagdon last Thursday which would have been visible from Bellasis where I was that day and a Red Kite on my patch on Friday following a tractor cutting hay which I remember hearing as I took some more shots at Banks Pond so I missed two major ticks. This Kestrel flew over and mocked me.

Last night it was Newbiggin with the Petrel Heads. The northerly passage was amazing and thanks to the running commentary on the location of birds as they flew past, mostly well out to sea, meant I even got a glimpse of a Stormie through my crappy bins (thanks Richard) although the other twenty or so were a view too far.
