Stopping Between Joyce’s Creek and Picnic Point to observe this Nankeen Kestrel produced an unexpected treat. The kestrel, a small male, was perched in a dead tree and as I watched on it commenced a slow, direct glide towards a nearby Grey Box. As it landed in the Grey Box, it displaced a large, dark raptor which alighted nearby. It was a Black Falcon – I got some nice views of both birds before the larger falcon powered off to the west. The behaviour of the kestrel suggested it may have been protecting a nearby nest site.
