Yesterday Steve W and I went out birding at Sherwood Forest.
There we saw two Wedge-tailed eagles, and two Nankeen kestrels.
Then on the way back, not far from the gate, we spotted a Black-shouldered Kite - the first I have seen in ACT this year, and there were also two more Kestrels.
Then as we drove along Uriarra Road we spotted two more Kestrels, and two Brown Falcons - one hovering and hunting, and one perched on a fence post, and appeared to be eating.
I had heard that the mouse plague had reached Murrumbateman, but perhaps it has arrived here already too, bringing with it some predators?
At Sherwood Forest we also saw a Boobook, and the Pied Butcherbirds were back, after not being seen at this location for several months.
