Patch week 30
I visited the Blue lagoon at about 0645 and for the second week running saw a juvenile common tern, but it did not stay long and flew away pausing only to take a pass at a hunting kestrel, I then watched the kestrel for a while and saw it try to catch a reed bunting but it gave up easily when then bunting fled for cover. A few moments later I was scanning the area with the scope and heard a rush of wings and looked up to see the kestrel 20 feet away on the cliff face, I'm not sure which of us was he more surprised.
all the pictures were taken with my iphone.
