Another Red Kite

Fairly certain I saw a Red Kite flying overhead this evening [5/5/15], just south of my house at the Moor. It was approx 8.15. With the way the light was I could see a lovely rich chestnut about it and a forked tail, and it was bigger than a couple of gulls that were around. It was playing a while in the wind and then flew off southwards and I lost it from view.

Will be keeping an eye out as will be wonderful to be seeing them here now along with our resident buzzard gang.
A Red Kite was also seen at c10.00am earlier in the day quite low over the A2100 at Canadia, just north of Battle, being buffeted by a strong wind. And another, or possibly the same, was seen over Westfield on 25th April (click on link). Here’s the distinctive shape to look out for in the skies above Westfield!
