7 white 7 red

Had a brilliant weekend with a great white egret on Saturday morning, then onto Blacktoft later to see the hen harrier come into roost (afraid no male, just a ringtail). Then Sunday morning we headed to Spurn. Simon found 2 snow buntings which were then flushed by an uncontrolled dog (of which there were many !). On the way home we did a detour to watch our red kites come into roost, a perfect end to a wonderful weekend.
The trees were full of fieldfares, just arriving.
Very difficult to count, but at least 30 red kites came into roost. Always a pleasure to watch, they certainly have the WOW factor!
