A wonderfully rainy few days at Abberton.

Black Falcon here yesterday (Sunday), a strongly coloured adult Collared
Sparrowhawk has been making passes at local finches for a few days, our
first White-throated Nightjar of the season has been hawking along the creek
at dusk, and White-backed Swallows have joined Rainbow Bee-eaters in their
exploration of creek-bank nest sites.

The Ground Cuckoo-shrikes further up the valley are off the nest now and
feeding young, while the nearby Tawny Frogmouth is sitting up high on top of
two big white chicks in her twiggy nest.

Cotton Pygmy-geese still at Lake Dyer on Friday, and three Red-necked Stints
and a couple of Black-necked Storks at Lake Atkinson (along with everything
else of course).
