At one of my kiting hotspots near Lampeter I observed 17 kites in the air during continuous heavy rain! Most seemed to be in pairs with the most dramatic interaction involving 3 birds, 2 of which grappled talons and fell almost to the ground. In view of the weather I thought they would soon clear off to their nests and my job would be done but as is typical they seemed to melt away and apart from one pair I'm none the wiser!
My neighbouring farmer is complaining that the long winter has adversely affected his ewes resulting in fewer lambs and today it was 3.6 degrees C around Tregaron.
