Red Kite Braunton Burrows

Red Kite Braunton Burrows

Walking on J Lane towards the beach we noticed three soaring raptors, two were common buzzards the third was a Red Kite which had what appeared to be the hindquarters of a rabbit in its talons. It was taking bites from it in flight before dropping the remains. It then soared away south towards Crow and maybe Appledore.

The 4 Godwits still present this morning. Plus the two Swans, one of which (the cob I think) was wearing a yellow ring. Probably the Dorset-ringed bird of recent years.

Land at Stoney Lane, Landkey.

Another morning spent clearing brambles and blackthorn that have taken over one area. Ravens and a buzzard overhead and a pair of bullfinches that came to the old cattle water trough for a drink. tried to photograph them but phone camera wouldn’t zoom in, as usual. GSW hammering away and a tawny owl calling.
