Airport raptors

On the way to work along Bridge Street this morning I stopped to have a look at two raptors that were sitting on the same double-arm light pole at the airport. One was a Nankeen Kestrel and the other was an Australian Hobby. They were each sitting on a seperate arm of the same light pole. This is the second time I have seen the Hobby on the same light pole in a week.
