White Kite J6 goes east!
Just had an email and follow-up telephone conversation from Mick Todd a raptor re-habilitator in Lincolnshire who has just taken delivery of Black/White J6. This leucistic kite featured in the last but one post having been released at Gigrin Farm on 19th August. On Friday 9th September it turned up in Freestone near Boston, Lincolnshire (254 kms from where it was released). It was found uninjured but exhausted and hungrily devouring a dead cat! Plans are being made to get it back to Wales to be released at some future date.
