1st Peregrine for the patch

Local patch: today at about 14.00 pm I spotted my first ever PEREGRINE for the patch. The bird was soaring quite high in the sky above Barcola (TS), together with some gulls. This should be the 127th species for the area. Then also large numbers of House Martins in mixed flocks with Swallows and Swifts. A female Sparrowhawk made its appearence in flight above the gardens, while a Golden Oriole was singing from the nearby woodland.
