Another Nest in Herefordshire

A few days ago an ex colleague called me and asked “Do you want to watch red kite. I replied “I am.” I told him I was in Wales. He said “Would you like to see them closer to home?” Needless to say arrangements were made for a visit. He lives in a secluded area less than ten miles from the Hereford city centre.

Within minutes of my arrival, a couple of days later, two untagged adult birds were seen leaving the nearby spinney, they had been in the area for three or four weeks.

I later made contact with the landowner a retired military officer who unfortunately refused permission to access the spinney for monitoring etc.

I do have two pairs of eyes in the inside so hopefully we will get some data.
