Black Kite at Rye Harbour

There was a report of a Black Kite at Rye Harbour yesterday [17/05/2016] –

I was driving on the A28 towards Brede yesterday when I saw a raptor fly high over the road near Brede bridge.  I knew straight away that it was not a Buzzard or Marsh Harrier and my first thought was Black Kite!  Upon turning around further up the road and returning back to where I first saw it to try and get a positive ID I spent about 15 mins looking around the area but still no joy. This was about 10.45 and having seen the Rye Harbour report I am now sure it was a Black Kite, probably the same bird.

This sighting was just outside Westfield parish boundary, but the bird could well have entered our area.
