Tail-less Red Kite

Cloudy, 4°, light NE.

"The Tail-less Chilterns Red Kite in OX10 has survived into 2018 (over a year without a tail), but its odd shape seems to wind up the local Rooks, who mob it more than other Kites". Per Richard Broughton.

Both Song Thrush and Mistle Thrush heard singing early morning.

  1. We often see the tail-less red kite soaring above our garden in Choosey - he/she does very well to fly normally without it! I saw a tiny Goldcrest today, too - very pretty.
