2 Red Kites at Maesbury around 5pm. One watched for 4-5 mins before it drifted off towards Wells. At its closest approx 30 yards.
Another Red Kite and a Common Buzzard were then seen circling nearby.
Whilst watching the first Kite a Merlin flew through very close to me.
Great to have some decent light after work.
Another Merlin yesterday on Queen Sedge Moor.
Red Kite heading north over Butleigh at 07.15 this morning with Carrion Crow in close attendance
