  1. 95% positive ID of a female Merlin in our eucalyptus tree today. My son came rushing through to me to say there was a sparrowhawk in the tree. I thought it looked too small for a sparrowhawk and then I remember reading that a Merlin had been spotted recently so grabbed the Collins. The curved markings around the eye and the small size makes me reasonably sure it was a female Merlin.

    I’ve seen sparrowhawks many times and this one wasn’t one.

    In the garden in Barnwell, south of Oundle c.2:50 pm for about 90 seconds.
