I met up with Mike (Bittern on here) on unexpected trip to Geneva today and he very kindly took me out for a day's birding:

157) Black-winged Kite, Derrière-Forestal / Avusy, CH, 20/10/2008. Lifer
158) Golden Eagle, Fort l'Ecluse, FR, 20/10/2008.

The BW Kite was a stunning bird - very clean-looking and tucking into a vole when we arrived

Also managed to add Woodlark to my Swiss List and saw a nice pile of nine Red Kites on migration, amongst other bits and pieces.
Thanks again to Mike.
