Hi All,

Not sure how LIghthouse and Boothe got on, but here it was fairly quiet. Five eagles on the day (but only the one Golden) were highlights. Apart from the early morning movement however, little of consequence. Predicting hawk movements sure isn't easy, I had pretty much convinced myself yesterday would be good as well but in the end it was a bit of a damp squib - maybe just too late in the season. A significant Red-tailed flight still hasn't occurred here, but that is not so much of a surprise as it seems to have been declining across the region in recent years for reasons as yet not completely understood.
