An Avian Paralympian

Sunny spells, 8°, light NW.

One of the local Red Kites has been tailless for a couple of months now. It has been seen over various parts of the village on a regular basis.

Would have thought (if it is the same bird) that there would be signs of the tail growing back by now but this maybe a permanent injury?

Being tailless will have some effect on the Kites manoeuvrability but we have not noticed any disadvantages so far.

In the garden and on the allotment today and a few Redwing over but that was about it!

Where are these mythical Hawfinch that are turning up everywhere in the UK and Oxfordshire?

Thank you to Richard Broughton for the photographs.
