Lee Mount and Swales Moor

Top marks to Nick for picking out the Red Kite this afternoon. Direction of the bird spot on as a few minutes later high over Lee Mount - a spec in the sky.... Red Kite - fantastic.

Red Kite - silhouette the best I could do at that height
Prompted me to go up Swales Moor for an hour or so along Ringby Lane. Worthwhile for a few 'bits and pieces' !
