A Red Kite flew east over Halsdon Farm (viewed from the back garden) at 1225pm. Also - a single House Martin and a couple Swallows.


  1. I gotta get out and find a lesser! Nice one

  2. Another one today. Always picked up by their distinctive and far-carrying song. Probably only a small window of time to get out and find one...
