Nankeen kestrel - Te Paki farm, Far North

Postby Oscar Thomas » Thu Jun 14, 2018 8:57 am

Reported by Graeme Loh through eBird. Seen on June 8th at 10am:
"Seen flying/hovering 20 metres above us and then glided off. Viewed for 3 minutes. about 600m away from the car park above the grazed paddock I am very familiar with the Nankeen kestrel from my childhood in Sydney. I could see them outside the school window most days. We did not see it again in the rest of the 8 hours of the day's walk. Sunny, 10 knots SW. No photo. went back to get my camera. Exact grid ref."
