Target species was of course Red Kite. Other species would be a bonus, hopefully a Merlin or Wheatear.
Literally within seconds of debussing at the location chosen we were rewarded with a kite. Then not one but two.
We spent a few hours being treated to repeated photo opportunities.
Others joined the party.
Robin, of course.
No sighting of Merlin or Wheatear, but a thoroughly enjoyable day.
