One more for the patchlist competition: kestrel!
I was in Margravine Cemetery trying to locate the drumming woodpecker and looking at a pair of canoodling parakeets when I spotted one to the North in stationary flight.

I was still wondering if I should count it or not an hour or so later when, looking at a flock of 8 goldfinches, I spotted in the background, and on patch, a crow chasing a kestrel...
