|Red Kite on a better day|
The male Pied Flycatcher was still about first thing but apart from him only the local birds. A Hoopoe fed in the garden and eventually flew off to its nest in the farm buildings. Then a bit of a shock as a Red Kite battled its way over going south. We normally see this species in March and October so this was a very late date.
|Male Cirl Bunting also in better weather|
I took a walk out when the drizzle eased and once again flushed up to a dozen Tree Pipts, 2 Subalpine Warblers and a bright male Cirl Bunting.
