Rath Cottage/Deer Park

Rath Cottage/Deer Park. Around 0845, what looked as if it had to be a Merlin zipped past. The ID confirmed this PM c.1545 when I saw a female Merlin perched on a tuasock on the SW side of the Deer Park - she was also seen from Lockley Lodge by Gary over Martin's Haven.
The two Wheatears - the same ones? - were still at/around the top of the garden first thing, but not evident this PM. Thos PM on a walk, a single Wheatear at the far SW of the Deer Park close to 4 Choughs.
Also this AM, a kestrel also perched on the coast path sign and over the garden.
