A pair of Shelduck together in a field (11th March) and a Red Kite drifted over Kelk (14th March). I will tot up the number of kite sightings but it must be getting close to double figures now. The split is roughly 2/3 spring and 1/3 autumn. None in winter...yet.
Along with the Whoopers mentioned in the previous post that's 3 new birds for the year.
076 Whooper Swan
078 Red Kite
