Garden Raptor and pics, 25th May 2017

Yesterday, with more bright sunshine and clear skies there was a steady flow of gulls and a few raptors. A single Common Buzzard, 2 Sparrowhawk and a Red Kite were noted, with with the Red Kite heard not seen. Almost 200 Herring Gulls around, with some LBBs. One raptor came over as well during the early afternoon, flying over rapidly very high up. It kept moving its tail left and right, changing direction; I thought it was a Buzzard originally, and still think so but it looks a little bit off
A highlight was a Little Egret at 1819 yesterday, which flew over towards Beddington - this is a 'garden' first. (I have got to apologise about the awful picture quality!)



With half term next week, I'm hoping to get at least one birding trip in, considering I have exams two weeks afterwards.
