Main Sighting: Red Kite
At approx 1230pm today, driving north towards Abergavenny (at Llanover Post Office) I almost hit a red kite that flew straight towards the car at about 15 feet for maybe 100 yards or so,and then swooped on roadkill just a few yards in front of the car. About 1/2 hour later saw two kites soaring above Abergavenny town centre.
