The sighting of the Kite is of interest to me. initially I would say its a 2006 bird, but the left wing tag is crucial. If white its possibly an E. Midland bird. I would be keen to receive any more sightings of wing-tagged birds.

Battle Hill highlights were a party of 7 Crossbill, 15 Raven's and a Redpoll. On Mynydd Aberyscir this afternoon 4 Red Kite and 4 Buzzard. One Kite had wing tags (right turquoise-green left unsure, could have been white which may make it the same bird Keith Noble saw last year).

A Kingfisher perched in a willow near the Boathouse above a fast red river and a roaring weir. Another flew past Captain's Walk. They must be hungry tonight. After worms - or moles? - on the Golf Course, a Buzzard; after rotting apples in a small garden under New County Hall, a Fieldfare; after dark and at last a break in the rain, a singing Robin.
