Greenway, River Dart

I was standing near the visitor reception at 1310  when a very dark looking kite sp. flew north overhead, giving just a few seconds view  between treetops ,mostly rear on as it glided over. Size, wingspan, colour and tail shape  all looked good for Black Kite  but  not really provable . Last seen flying actively up the valley towards Totnes at considerable height.

A Red-legged Partridge was on the rough track towards Maypool on the south side of the estate.
