Andy Jayne reports that "two Red Kites were circling over Ackland's Moor for at least ten minutes at 10.40am before drifting off north". In spite of their increasing abundance and expanding range across much of mainland UK, there have only been eight previous records of Red Kite on Lundy and this is the first time that two have been seen together. Andy also made an exceptionally high count, for March, of 166 Puffins at Jenny's Cove.
