Significant sighting

  14 Jan 2019

It is predicted that the CNM area will become more important with Climate change - It would be great for all breeding sightings to be entered - though this year's breeding season is just about over

Author's notes

Young fledgling, couldn't fly that well, had parents and older siblings (3) in the area. Parents feeding it - moved on after a few hours. Found near shed and placed in tree nearby.
