Amur Falcon

Amur Falcon

Falco amurensis

This bird was found by local Kalmar-birder Tomas Fredriksson at Kalmar flygplats, Småland on June 30th and was seen until July 1st 2005.
Tomas believed that it was a Red-footed Falcon (Falco vespertinus), he didn't see the underwing coverts. Some local-birders was out to get a nice year-tick, but didn't see the bird until Andreas Ståhl came and saw a falcon, he made the ID and the bird was out on the birdcall system at 18.15.
The next morning the bird flew north at 10am.

It was filmed by Timo Samanen on July 1st 2005.
