What a great day out you had. O/\

Love the Swan pics. O/\ And the displaying Grebes are ^Q^

Think the Buzzard is another Black Kite? Did you get a pic of the head?

I'm a bit jealous of the raptor sightings. Haven's seen a single one here yet. O/
But the rest of your birdies is great as well - quite a few that I would like to see but don't get here.
Maybe we should do home swapping for a while. Then you'll get to see the sea birds and I'll get to
see yours. :-0

Thanks for all your work to show us your photos! O0

Good one of the perched Buzzard Nan. \O

Love the kite flight pics. This one is a Black Kite though - the underparts are uniform warm russett, Red Kite would be paler and streaked. \O

You have a special little reserve there Nan. It seems to attract lots of species into the area. O/\
