Good Weather For Kite Flying

A few hours at Colyford Common/Black Hole Marsh this morning was lightened up no end when a Red Kite came flying north over the reserves just before 9am....

Clearly an immature bird (a first summer/second cal year)

It was easily the lowest flying one I've ever seen on patch- passing just above tree top height. I didn't get my camera on it until it was flying away, the views shortly before I took this photo were just exceptional - of Gigrin Farm quality!

The only other bird of note here was a single (and invisible) Golden Plover over at 8am.
