Red Kite (Chipstable)

Red Kite floating leisurely over Chipstable (3 miles west of Wiveliscombe) at 840am today. Full adult, I think, including all primaries fully formed. Persuaded off north-eastwards by two Carrion Crows, while an unusually large gang of 7 Magpies ignored the kite and attended to a Buzzard.

Couple of Redwings passing north; four Ravens whizzing about.

(Only immigrant so far: Chiffchaff on 20th.)
