I accepted an offer of a lift with Mark this afternoon to look for Red Kites. After reaching Withington village, we took a wrong turn and ended up on the road to Woodbridge. It wasn't really a wrong turn though because as we reached the edge of the woods, a Red Kite was soaring parallel to the woods, and gave superb views for about 10 minutes, twice circling overhead (photo: Paul Masters). Absolutely brilliant. The afternoon was complete with a female White Wagtail at Cassey Compton nearby, and later a male near Andoversford while looking through a flock of Common Gulls.
