Merlin

About 9am this morning a Merlin hunting along the Flora hedge along the footpath (field side) – Using the fence posts as a convenient perch between each flight.  Spotted by 6 magpies, who flew across the field to intercept and mob..  quite a violent squabble thereafter.  Did not see where the merlin escaped to.

    Wow! There was a hunting bird devouring a pigeon on our street yesterday (Truman Avenue in Abraham Heights). We have had our bird books out but we are pretty sure it was a sparrowhawk and not the merlin.
