A memorable moment for me this morning when at 10.55am a Red Kite appeared over our Penrhyn Bay garden. The gulls went crazy! Immediately a second bird joined it and the birds slowly drifted east. I called the family and we watched them thermal higher and higher until they joined another 2 Red Kites! Superb - 4 Red Kites together. Although Kites breed inland from here, these didn't look like local birds as they seemed to continue north out to sea. Next stop Isle of Man? Solway? Two Buzzard also flew north a few minutes later.
A few more birds on the Orme this morning too, despite the early morning easterly winds being bitter.
