A very late Black Kite found in Lincolnshire in November 2006 and later moving to Norfolk, where it stayed into 2007, was soon identified as a Black-eared Kite Milvus migrans lineatus, the eastern race of Black Kite. Assuming it doesn’t stay after the end of the winter, there seems no good reason to doubt its credentials and so listers should feel free to count it if they so wish. However, there is no indication that any of the authorities will split this subspecies from Black Kite, and so no additional species will be added into BUBO Listing.
