High on kites.

The red kite numbers are starting to build at Stainby rubbish tip.There were seven last weds and at least twelve today. Wonderful to see, my all time record was twenty-one in the air together, a couple of years back. Will keep you posted. Also seen were a couple of buzzards, a raven (seen on most visits here now), and a sparrowhawk. A few redwings and lots of  fieldfares were in the surrounding hedges, late afternoon a good flock of about 250 fieldfares got together.P1100193P1100189 P1100192
