Red Kite Bonanza - 18.4.09

An afternoon out and about around Dunstable and Tring Reservoirs started off well with a Red Kite flying over the car on the A41.

Another Red Kite with 5 Buzzards over the downs was followed by a pair of Lapwings with 3 small chicks on Bison Hill and my first Lesser Whitethroat of the year in the car park.

The third Red Kite of the day was at Wilstone Reservoir. Also there was an adult Little Gull, a Male Garganey and a Raven.

My first Cuckoo of the year was heard at Marsworth Reservoir.

At Startops End Reservoir 3 Yellow Wagtails over the road in the horse paddocks and a House Martin were the highlights!

And finally the 4th Red Kite of the day flew over Tringford Reservoir.
