The last few days have really shown how diverse (and great) my job can be. On Friday myself and some local members of the Raptor Study Group attached the remaining birds with radio transmitters and wingtags so they are ready for release.
Yesterday I had a lovely walk up to the cages in the sunshine for feeding. Two of the already released birds were sitting on top of the cages and didn't hear me coming so I had some great views of them pondering their new found freedom.
Today we released another cage of kites. The brilliant blue sky was the perfect backdrop for the young red kite's first flight.
