Photo opportunity! If anyone is interested in close shots of Lesser Redpoll. Daily, two are ground feeding under the last birch tree on right of Cambrian Way as you drive up from Morrisons Filling Station, Brecon town. Sometimes on pavement, or on mown lawns, feeding on fallen birch seeds, they allow close approach.

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.
