Lutley Wedge 28/09/12 (8°c) Cloudy, low cloud drizzle/rain showers. Wind (SSW) F3

An excellent morning for passage raptors if not the weather! A superb Red Kite flew low SSW at 07.53am and a Peregrine flew over WNW. A trickle of Mipits, Swallows and House Martins struggled through overhead though the increasingly frequent rain showers and drizzle coming through later in the morning seemed to kill off any meaningful vis mig.

Nice one Craig. There is something special about seeing Red Kite on your patch. They are not thick on the ground locally.
