Another brief local patch round (22nd November)

Got up early this morning to fit in a brief mooch around one of the many local patches (the footpath by the quarry).  There was very strong wing threatening to blow whole branches of trees so there was little chance of me refinding the YBW from last week.  Instead I made my way slowly on through the fields were I got a better view over the quarry itself.   Here I observed one Raven Corus Corax battling through the rain and wind.  The highlight, a Peregrine Falco peregrinus I found perched inside the quarry had anything but flying on its mind and simply staked out the bad weather but was gone before I returned back to Campus.
