Bird of Prey
This may be delusion or misidentification but has anyone else seen a prey of prey, possibly a kestral or sparrow hawk, swooping and floating lazily around the meadow area of Hilly Fields?
The family Skitster have twice seen a dunn or light brown bird with a fanned tail, moving like a bird of prey on the footpath by the meadow area of Hilly Fields, on the way down to Adelaide Avenue. We've seen it perching on the lamposts, possibly eviscerating it's lunch.
Update: Mrs Skitster found the Hilly Fields Birdwatch blog this afternoon, thanks also to Sue for pointing us that way, which is a good blog with some stunning shots of the kestral.
