Sat 7 Apr Black Falcon Copper Coast Hwy at 33 59 39S 137 47 45E
Black Falcon (2) First saw the a female Falcon flying quite spectacular fast and low trying to grab an Australasian Pipit, the Pipit managed to duck and weave enough to gain a life saving gap only to be attacked again except this time by the male who came down fast from above! didn't see the end result as the chase descended below the roadside trees!
