Mount Tabor watch point

Had 2 and half hours at Mount Tabor watch point this pm. A few Common Buzzards about + 2 Curlew/Whimbrel mobbing one Buzzard, they moved off towards Ogden. Then at 14.00 I picked up a large raptor over Cold Edge Dams, scope strait on it, a superb Red Kite. Phoned it in to Dave and followed it right over head and then towards Lee Mount where DJS saw it from his garden. Also had 2 Ravens, 2 Kestrels, 2 Sparrowhawks and 9 sightings of Common Buzzards. On to Roils Head where I found a male Redstart in the shelter belt.

I owe you one Nick.!!! Great stuff as it doesn't always come together like that. It was really high over me but I managed a few shots but not had chance to download them yet. Fantastic birds.
