Since past few days we have been seeing birds which are #1 usually not so readily seen #2 not seen in places we have seen them… also all the sightings have been incidental
23rd Saturday – Spotted owlet near an ice cream parlour
24th Sunday – Dusky Craig Martins in our driveway
25th Monday – Little Grebe in the pond behind the new house
26th Tuesday – Common Hawk Cuckoo aka Brain fever bird sitting low on a wire while driving back to home
The most surprising for me was the brain fever bird because tracking it down in the field can be really really tricky, you can hear it all over but can’t see it, in fact this is the closest I have ever seen it, since I had a wee bit of doubt regarding its identification, it called out in its trade mark voice just as we stopped the car….
