Looks like one of the birds from the fishing lake near us got interested in our pond (wouldn't have been the first time). Must have been disappointed to find the...

1 x Red Kite over Newton on 26th, 27th, 29th May
2 x Red Kite on 30th. Also 2 x over Clifton on Dunsmore on 31st and 1 x today.

Poor blurry photo, Warwickshire UK

A friend sent me this, all they could tell me was that it was "about twice as big as a blackbird". I'm guessing it's a mistle thrush though it looks a bit odd?
