Other specials included European bee-eater and a lucky sighting of two black crake on an island.

Description: On a regular check of the Rufouschest Sparrowhawk nest, i spotted the male of the pair, high up in the tree as usual. He is much shyer than the female and won't come down as low as she does. I watched him fly onto the nest and observing him for some time shifting about on the nest. i have cropped one of the photos so that you can see him on the nest. it appears that this pair is sharing parental duties ( 12 hours on and 12 hours off)
