Red Kite, Raven and Little Owl

UPDATE: There’s now a more detailed account of the morning here.

A good morning between Firle village and Bo-Peep.

To begin, the autumn’s first two Grey Wagtails around the buildings at Place Farm, Firle.

Then at Tilton, a Raven and the first of at least five Kestrels, plus a Little Owl flushed from the escarpment into a hedge, from where it received close attention from at least a dozen Chaffinches before retreating into a stand of mature trees.

At Bo-Peep, a fine Red Kite cruised low overhead, going west, with Yellowhammer still singing and many Meadow Pipits and Linnets buzzing around, with a distant Buzzard adding to the raptor count.

Back at Tilton, the same kite or another sailed over west again.

    • Saw the Red Kite above the Downs, looking down into Cradle Valley at 15,00 hours. 10th August, 2009. Wonderful to see.
