Usk

Main Sighting:
Just got back from Atlas work in the Llangybi tetrad (39Y), with some good sittings. Just below Twyn Farm noticed a Hobby, and Buzzard sparing in the sky together. The Hobby which was flying south must have passed close to the Buzzards nest site, hence the challenge. Eventually after a few dives at the Buzzard, the Hobby flew off. The Last time I noticed anything like this was on 31.7.68 at Creag na Doire Duible, Scotland when Phil Llewellyn and I had a single Peregrine, Golden Eagle, and Buzzard sparing in the sky together. Also 2 male Goosanders, and two very agitated Common Sandpipers on the River Usk, one of which was feigning injury. Got rather wet when it started to rain heavily. I was waiting for my bus, but couldn'st use the bus shelter because a pair of Swallows were feeding young. What we do for birds.
