A very enjoyable, if cold session, with at least 4 Red Kites, possibly more. A Peregrine fly past our viewpoint, and both Sparrowhawk and Kestrel also put in an appearance. In woodland nearby we had Bullfinch, Redwing, Goldcrest, Blue Tit & Goldfinch. On the route to the viewpoint were a plethora of Pheasants, a few Red-legged Partridge and yesterday at least 3 Grey Partridge. Fingers-crossed that the roads won't be so icy tomorrow!
