South Brent

This morning a female Sparrow hawk in full ariel pursuit of three flying Collard Dove over home, once it had passed a pair of Bullfinch and male Siskin on the garden feeders, Green Woodpecker seen and heard and a male Blackcap in full song at the front of the house.

First House Martin seen over the house this year followed a short while later by eight Swallows.

Male BlackcapGarden Warbler

A walk around Brent Hill gave a shy but very vocal Garden Warbler, Kestrel, Raven, Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler and Blackcap all noted.

Back at home a Peregrine in after my racing pigeons, despite a determined effort they lived to fly another day.
