Well it turned out to be a good Sunday Morning, after checking the St Just area near Lands End for the Black Kite that has been hanging around for nearly two weeks. Having seen no sign of it we came back to Drift Res near Penzance, and took a walk out to the hide when we were almost there Paul called out Got it and there it was over the fields at the back of the Res.
It stayed around for 50 mins though distant and at one point was being mobbed by a Buzzard and a Peregrine Falcon. It was also harried most of the time by Ravens.
Anyway it was really great to stand and watch this Lifer glide beautifully around the sky, it was just a pity I could only manage a few record shots.
So here it is..............................................
