Red Kite numbers are still holding up despite the time of year meaning many should now be thinking of other things. Nesting takes place this month and the next so courtship is on the cards for many. The rough weather m-ay well be reason for the numbers coming in. Birds are not waiting for me to drive away any more but dive in close to me as I put out the food.
We've lost one of our dogs this week. Bessie, pictured both here and on the "Really Wild" page. While on times not terribly sociable , she was both my close companion and our guard dog at night for ten years or more and is sadly missed.
Tony Cross brought in a kite for rehabilitation last week but it was soon recognised to be far too poorly for our facility so later in the day it was taken to a bird hospital for treatment.
We are still waiting to hear whether we are allowed to transmit video from the rehabilitation centre. Watch this space!
