Orange full stop

Coming to feed on a few scraps gleaned from our local butcher was orange full stop, 2005 chick born just over our boundary. Its so pleasing to see tagged birds turn up looking so fit and beautiful in the sunlit snow: proof of survival. Chris you logged another of 'my' chicks, orange 69, one of 2 born in a nest in the Aeron valley.
The gathering of kites at feeding stations can give the impression that there are huge numbers of kites everywhere as revealed by a comment from a wildlife friendly farmer to the effect that he doesn't like to feed the kites as they might over-breed. Haven't quite worked out what that means yet!
