Red-footed Falcon

First month of the autumn migration survey is now over. The most numerous migrant in July has been Common Starling Sturnus vulgaris with some 5,000 indviduals. It has also offered several nice birding suprises already and so was it also today. 2cy male Red-footed Falcon Falco vespertinus, seen during lunch break, saved very quiet morning migration. This was another new species (this time very excpected one) for the island. According to our databese - 234 bird species has been registreted on Kihnu island.
