Always nice to see something different out the window .
I saw one over north Curtin horse paddocks a few weeks ago. Being pursued by
raven. Have had them only occasionally here but more recently (since
retirement) every other year usually in spring. Certainly had immature with
parents once in late summer. They’re fairly regular on Red Hill I believe
perhaps they breed up there..
