it seems that this may be a good year for raptors
around Turramurra (Northern Sydney). This year's count already stands at 6
Peregrine (at least 2 individuals as I have seen an
immature and an adult)
Grey Goshawk (new for my house list - seen on 11
Pacific Baza (I understand that there is a pair
Wedge Tailed Eagle
Hobby - seen yesterday evening chasing
I also have regular sightings of a Collared
Sparrowhawk and a Kestrel and am confident they'll be on the list before too
long as well.
To add to the raptors, last night at 2:30 am, I
woke up and listened to a Boobook calling for about an hour. My wife heard
it earlier in the week and last week (when I was away) too - one night I must
get myself motivated enough to get up and see if I can find it!
