Red Kite

My sister lives in Newbury, Berkshire, which is on the southern end of the current UK range of Red Kites. The kites are slowly spreading south and one or two turn up here from time to time. However, none of my visits to my sister - the most recent of which was yesterday - have let me get any decent shots of the birds at all. One flew over the house yesterday afternoon but I failed to get a close shot.

In the absence of a decent kite shot from Berkshire I'm going to cheat and upload three photos I took in Oxfordshire in 2008, on my way home from the Bird Fair. I'd taken a detour off the motorway to a place called Shirburn, which has loads of the birds.
