RED KITE IN GARDEN AGAIN
A single RED KITE visited my garden (at Chaffinch House) again yesterday lunchtime, swooping down at suet balls I have placed on a flat table. It plunged down on at least five occasions and eventually flew off with one ball in its talons. It then proceeded to bring the ball to its beak in the similar fashion to how a Hobby feeds on dragonflies and repeated this several times, pecking at the suet in the green mesh. It was then chased by a Jackdaw and flew off and away into the wooded escarpment.
