Red Kites

Four Red Kites over the house today and a fifth way over towards Haldon Hill. Fine weather in April equals Red Kite movement. One of the more predictable birding events in the birding calendar. Also 1 Siskin over. Late this afternoon, on the dung heap, there were 2 Wheatear and 2 White Wagtail. Off Mudbank - 9+ Sandwich Tern and 2 Red-breasted Merganser. I'm still yet to see many species of common migrant in Exmouth. As yet no Sand Martins, House Martins, Whitethroats, Yellow Wagtails or Redstarts. Not good!

Twin-spot Quaker - a new one for me courtesy of Martin (last weekend) - many thanks Martin.
