Eurasian Collared Dove (Mike Lawrence) - one was sadly killed in my garden today
THURSDAY 22 JANUARY 2009
Another very wet night with heavy rain and strong winds overnight giving way to an occluded front bringing intermittent rain until lunchtime. The front then went through leaving a fine and quite mild afternoon.
CHAFFINCH HOUSE (BUCKS)
Shortly after the rain cleared, a RED KITE overflew the garden and took an interest in a dead Collared Dove which sadly got hit by a Sparrowhawk. It swooped down several times but then veered away and drifted off towards the Chess River Valley.
