At least one, probably two Hobbies at Barton Hills NNR this morning, one at each end of reserve. Pair of Northern Wheatear still present on burrowed area at top SE corner with male calling and exhibiting courtship behaviour. Female vanished for long periods possibly into burrow. Also nearby had a female Ring Ouzel. One Raven flew by mobbing another raptor but only few seconds view of this and suspected male Gos as looked too large for even a large female Sparrowhawk (Ian Kelly)
