|Red Kite, C7, Blue/White|
My luck was in yesterday: I had a sunny afternoon in the garden and the neighbouring fields were being ploughed for a spring sowing:
Straight into the field, a Common Gull and 20 Lesser Black backed Gulls appeared, unusual enough round this part of inland Wicklow: its incredible how they can zoom in on the one field thats being tilled.. I probably won't see gulls here again until the winter months when birds commute from Arklow on the coast up to the Vartry Reservoir at Roundwood.
A Buzzard put in a brief appearance too, tumbling in on the Kites which seemed to operate as a pair.
