Weekend birding

A lot of cycling this weekend. On Saturday morning I went to Caldecote to try for the Ring Ouzel but only saw a brief Wheatear and some confiding Yellowhammers. Saturday was a long ride to the end of the Central Drove and back.

Masses of raptors about on both days with up to 3 Red Kites together and 8 Common Buzzards in one go over Elton.
