The sky was blue and the sun shining so I took a drive up to the moors above Brechfa Forest to Mynydd Llanllwni. I first noted 4 Ravens and a Buzzard but the main highlight was up to 10 Red Kites paying a great deal of attention to the improved meadows below the moor. There were no Golden Plovers to be seen which I thought might be around.
Returning home through the forest I did see Bullfinches on a number of occasions and this species must have done well here this year. Before reaching home a couple more Red Kites graced the skies and then down came the rain again.
