The on-site love story involving our pair of red kites has moved to a new level. Lynn caught them being amorous one morning on last year's nest at the top of one of our tall beeches. There was a lot of thrashing around and then both red kites fell out of the nest and spiraled downwards before they could recover their dignity and soar back up again with rather red faces. It must have been quite a session.
We shall now look for signs of nest renovation - a thorough spring-clean at least - and report future progress.
