Lyd Valley near Brat Tor

My first post here so please be kind to me!!

I spent the morning walking the Lyd valley from High Down over to Brat Tor and the highlight of the walk was a Red Kite (see pic), circling and landing on the downs and dog-fighting with 2 Buzzards and a Crow. 

Other sightings included at least 2 pairs of Stonechat on High Down, at least one pair of Wheatear below Bray Tor and a Willow Warbler riverside. Also a very brief encounter with a Weasel!!
