Seems i went at the wrong time, sadly. At 1.00ish today at JW i saw what i think was a Whistling Kite. I say 'think' because the bird i saw matched the images of a WK on other sites on the internet (distinctive under wings pattern), however i can see no mention of this bird in the COG directory. Is it known by some other name or have i likely made a mistake?

Otherwise, nothing particularly exciting (apologies to the multitude of birds i did see, which i've just swept into the 'taken for granted' box). My focus was not on waterbirds today.
