Red-footed Falcon at the golf course

16th June 2021

This Red-footed Falcon was first found by Barry Reed early this afternoon at Giants Castle/south end of airfield. Later on in the evening, Tony Gilbert relocated it at the golf course.

Fog with my work, just don’t mi and can be a pain in the butt! Barry Reed put the news out that he had found a Red-footed Falcon at Giants Castle, shortly after 14.00 before it moved to rocks in the Blue Carn area, east of Porth Minnick. It was here that I caught up with it some five hours later. I had been there for only ten minutes, getting some good views of it perched on Blue Carn, when it flew off towards the airfield. After a brief search with others on the latter sight, there was sign of it. However, a call from Tony Gilbert got me up to the golf course as he had relocated it perched on poles on the third fairway of the golf course. Here it showed superbly as it switched from one pole to the other and spent a lot of time hovering just above me. Although the light was shite, I spent a good hour with it as it showed off at very close range. After, I made my ways home, set my scope up in the garden and picked the falcon out quite easily sat on the same pole that I last saw it on the golf course. Ideal!

I had only been at Blue Carn for ten minutes, when the Red-footed Falcon decided to fly off towards the airfield.

It appeared to being feeding well on the golf course getting beetles and worms down it’s neck

I do love Red-footed falcons and they appear to be turning up more regular on Scilly including the last one only two years ago at Porth Hellick Down

I love to throw sticks at trees! I also can’t get enough of music! I also blog about my observations on Scilly and wherever I go around the world and what’s sometimes on my mind. I’ve visited over 30 countries and some more times than once. I’ve worked and volunteered in Nepal, USA, Peru, Gambia, Costa Rica, 3x Australia, and refugee camps in Palestine The profile image is one I took while in Palestine of a brave Israeli holding high the Palestinian flag in front of the Israeli Offensive Forces during protests in Belin
