Red Kite Feeding Frenzy by susiemc

Red Kite Feeding Frenzy

This is the kind of thing we should have seen a few days ago when it was foggy and raining. This picture was taken at the end of October.

I have mixed feelings about kite feeding centres. It's very unnatural to have red kites in such large numbers, so much so that they have to be fed throughout the year because there isn't enough natural food for them. It is a very popular visitor attraction and if it helps the general public to appreciate these magnificent birds then that can only be good. There's a lot of interesting information in the visitor centre and lots of fun but educational stuff for children. My grandchildren love to go there. On balance I think it's a good thing.
Wow, quite a feeding frenzy. I suppose if food in the wild is scarce then this is a good thing.
