"Puttock augmentation" (part three).

Whilst we are stuck in Royal Berkshire at present, it seems only fit to again report on the Royal County's Royal Kites.

On our walk the other afternoon, the three boys (me and my sons) of the house, watched a sileage field be cut and twenty kites (and two buzzards) also therefore make hay whilst the sun shone.

A few photos and a video below.

On August 1st it will be thirty-one years EXACTLY that these birds were reintroduced (5 individuals from Spanish stock) to the Chiltern escarpment a dozen or two miles away from us - and I think we're up to c.5000 pairs now.
