Red Kite

Had a very lucky Red Kite on the 20th at Jay House lane , I had been there at lunch time looking for Med Gulls with no luck and then I had to drop my lad off at Golf just up the road and just as I drove along jay house lane one flew low south..☺☺☺Also had my first Buzzard over the local wood for a few weeks which is a good sign..................
