Red Kites

 Bird 1: Primaries missing on left wing
Bird 2: Not good angle but doesn't look like any primaries (maybe one?) missing on left wing

Two sightings of Red Kite today, following one yesterday, two day before, one day before that and one on 20th (the adult-see below). The bird yesterday had a secondary missing so both birds today were different. Obviously a few on the move at the moment- either migrants from further afield or perhaps birds being pushed around as territories are being set up.

Also today 1 Brambling over calling, 2 Common Buzzard, 1 ad Med Gull, 2 Green Sandpiper and 4 Chiffchaff. Still no Wheatears on the ploughed area which looks perfect for them. Hopefully when wind changes they will come in.
