(11) Red Kite

Red Kite getting food in the garden.

This isn't sharp enough (I don't think my shutter speed was fast enough, I may not have focussed correctly, or my lens just isn't sharp enough), but it is probably the best Red Kite shot I have taken!
wow awesome capture!

@Cherrill Thank you for the prediction! Was great to see it come true.

@markyl Hundreds round here! I'm over in the South of Bucks, so look up and you can't miss them!

@espyetta Not as far as I'm aware. I think they are a slightly different branch of the same family though :)

@mittens Thanks, Marilyn! Only the 3rd time :)

@princessliz I'm over in Buckinghamshire in the UK, just 26 miles outside of London, and there are hundreds over here!

@princessm Yup :) There are loads round where we live!
