A first for the new Burton Mere Wetlands :)
Finally, after a few months of regular nearby sightings a local (?) red kite shows itself and boy did we know about it - several hundred black-tailed godwits, avocets, black-headed gulls and lapwings mobbed it until it disappeared over the horizon - no wonder its avoided us so far!
Sightings in the surrounding areas have been more frequent this year than any other so thanks to those responsible for their re-introduction.
This raptor has an interesting history of survival and re-introduction. Happy to see its sightings are more frequent despite the mobs.
Thanks for the comment "Red Kite" any sightings over the water?
If you mean the English side of the Dee then not yet; however on the Welsh side of the Dee I saw some in the Llanfyllin area of Powys during the Half-Term holiday.
