A pretty boring day shift today (0700/1900) saw me just over the border in Northamptonshire assisting colleagues from EMAS at a road traffic collision. Returning to Rugby from Barby at 1645, on the Barby Lane, a large raptor was seen over the road near the canal bridge. Red Kite! Believe it or not, this is the first Red Kite I have had so close to home (almost a garden tick!!!), superb views and NO camera!!!
