WEW!!! What a lively discussion about kites, records, etc and I could
have been out birding instead of reading VTBIRD! But it is healthy and
informative and points out the need to be better observers.
One thought - many of our vagrants/rarities seem to arrive on the winds of
bad weather. I only note that we have seen none of that for a couple of weeks.
Forgot to mention that we had 2 minks sightings at the Colchester Causeway
when we were there on the 13th looking for tufted duck. They crossed the
causeway about 200 yds. apart from each other within a 5 min. time
period. Could have been one FAST swimmer!
Send those warblers north......
