The new Whats App service has me all informed and up for seeing birds. I left Alnwick as soon as I heard of this bird but was informed en route that it had flown off. Its an awful disappointment when this happens, I tend to sulk and curse. Thats what I did, on the bench overlooking The Coquet Estuary. The residents kept me company and cheered me up
When I arrived the Red Footed Falcon was indeed showing well, I took some hurried snaps before it flew north, not sure if its been seen again.
