Couple of shots from the Burnhopfield area from this weekend.. Seems the Crows must have young now they are really putting some proper effort into mobbing the Red Kites..

I was going to go around Rowlands Gill at the weekend to watch the red kites but chose Teesside instead. After seeing your pics wished i'd gone to look for the kites. Crackin bird.

Went around the Academy on Sunday. Gropper, reed warbler, lesser whitethroat and plenty of sand martins.

At the Academy this morning for a couple of hours until the weather changed. In the car park - wheatear, yellow wag, pied wag and mipits. Along the path - linnets, goldfinch, whitethroat x 4, gropper x 3. Over the pools - plenty of swallow, sand martin and a lone swift. Lots of reed bunting showing well and a good number of reed warbler heard (but not seen!)
