Hey Stu, nice one. I was at the shooting cabin with an Irish bloke for an hour yesterday afternoon hoping to see you. All we saw was a Kestrel and a pair of stonechats. Back at Broomhead Hall I did see 2 Raven on Thursday, a Red Kite and Hobby on Friday and the Red Kite again this morning (Sunday).
