Monday and Tuesday saw me working away in the Bucks/ Oxon area this week. Now, regular visitors to this blog will have probably gathered that I have a bit of a soft spot when it comes to Raptors, with one of my personal favorites being Red Kite. Whilst travelling around on Monday, particularly along the A40 corridor I saw more Red Kites in one day than certainly anywhere else that I've been, both home and abroad! Saw easily at least 40 individuals including several wheeling low over housing estates in small towns and villages- you lucky, lucky bar stewards! Along with the kites picked out a couple of Common Buzzards and, at our digs for the night, a nice garden provided a little moth called Pyrausta aurata along with Grey Wagtail and some classic English countryside full of House Sparrows, Swallows and Greenfinches lurvely!
