Whichever way t'cat jumps, they're a rare sight around here. I wonder if they've come out of captivity?

They are nesting on a lot of the churches, and the same pairs come back every year, do you never watch Springwatch

Mick-- Was waiting expecting to see one of them to make it's first flight, as Tonker said it could've been a Hobby
so I looked at the one we have on display that's a Hobby by Russell Willis A1470 all I can say it's a nice bird of prey
