Monday 3rd January

A bit confusing all these days off, as I thought it was Tuesday..... not an age thing!
Yesterday, (Sunday!), James had a Barn Owl over on the reserve at Gruinart, and on the flats amongst the Barnies was the Canada Goose, hutchinsii sp.
Today, along at Sunderland, in the field where the Peregrine/Pheasant/Buzzard were yesterday, the Red Kite was present and it flew off with carrying something in its' talons, probably what was left of yesterday's kill. About 3 hours later, on our way home we had probably the same bird on the wing, closer to the steading at Sunderland. The bird had definitely blue wing tags, but what the lettering was I still do not know! Back at home, there were more birds at the feeders today.
