|Common Buzzard and Red Kite high over Shadoxhurst|
The Buzzard was a local breeding bird, which soon saw the Kite move-on, before returning back to its own woodland territory.
The Kite is just my second village sighting, (having missed out on a long stayer last year) and the first bird was seen just back in 2010. It will be interesting to see if any of us see this bird sticking around over Orlestone. Looking very carefully at the images, I think we can see that this Kite has two tags, possible yellow in colour - suggesting a Southern England released bird.
Back to work now!
