On 29th November, 2010, I made my second visit of the second winter period to Gigrin Farm for the purpose of reading Red Kite tags.I later identified twenty seven (27) tagged birds all from the principality. There were not any foreign birds visible.There were two leucistic birds; the untagged very pale bird that is paler than black/orange 51.
What a difference a week makes oh and minus three degrees in temperature with about an inch of snow! The first winter (dark blue) tagged birds were present in some number. The details are below:-
Black/Blue: N9; f; 10; 37; 55; 50; Z1; 02; 68;
Black/black: a; 77; 68; 87; 89; 36;
N8Black/yellow: 23; Ace of Spades
Black/orange: 51; 65; 29;
Black/pink: 30; 36; L2; N7;
If any of these are from nest monitored by fellow watchers please drop me an email with location details.
