I got out for a few hours yesterday morning before it got too hot. The most interesting bird was a long-legged Buzzard at Ali Farm. It climbed to several hundred meters and then headed due north at 9am.

This was the closest I could get

This kestrel was also at Ali Farm. Given the severe wear on the wings and tail feathers and the scratch on the right tarsus, I wonder if this individual escaped from captivity?

Things are very quiet now with most migrants gone and only a handfull still around. These shots were taken over the past few weeks.
