Red Kite at Gospel Pass, 12 November, photo in Gallery. I have some feedback on this bird. The tags - , white left, green right, show that it was ringed in a nest in the East Midlands in 2006. It is not possible to read any numbers on the tags. Two white/green birds have been reported in Wales this year, 52 near Machynlleth in Feb, 55 at Gigrin Farm on 25 Oct.
