Blind in one eye but still flying White 6

Start off with my best side! This bird has been a regular at Susanna's feeding station at Talsarn and although missing a wing feather or two seems to be holding its own against the other 200 plus kites that visit. What is its history Tony? Male or female?

  1. Hi Liz,

    Black/White 6 was ringed as a single chick (probably a male) at a nest near Llanybydder on 22nd June 2002. The only sightings we have of him are all at Susanna's at Talsarn, he has never been ID'ed at a nest site.

    We've had several one-eyed kites and one-eyed buzzards over the years and they seem to cope pretty well - guess you don't need binocular vision to scavenge and catch worms!
