Red Kites - South Brent

After another call from a friendly farmer, I went back to his farm above South Brent at around 11am today. Not as many Red Kites as Steve Hopper and I saw last night, but still observed at least 4 flying around the farm.Clearly they had stayed around overnight. Maximum count of buzzards in the air at any one time 5, but more than this were present. A wheatear also seen. The plumage on the kites looked fairly tatty! I could not get a good photograph and the attached record shot was the best I could do.
