Red Kite – 1994

Milvus milvus – BARCUD COCH – Scarce visitor

Once a common resident but by Mathew’s (1894) time had become a rare occasional visitor. Lockley et al. (1949) added one record, a bird on the north side of Preseli Top on 17 April 1947. It occurs more frequently now, one or more being seen most years, usually appearing in the late autumn with subsequent winter records, and for the last three years staying into the summer.
