Black Kite

26th May 2008, Monday

I was coming out of Float Lane at Icklesham this afternoon at approximately 17.45, when I saw a large raptor which looked like a kite fly over head. I stopped the car and grabbed my binoculars, expecting to see a Red Kite, but spent the next 20 minutes having wonderfully close views of a Black Kite, at times being mobbed by the local crows.
