Red Kites (Milvus milvus)

After an afternoon in The Chilterns photographing Red Kites, I started to make my way home as the sun began to set and skies once busy with the fork-tailed silhouettes of these impressive scavengers began to empty as the birds settled down to roost. But, as the light began to fail, there was one more shot to be had…

Canon 1Ds MkII, 1/320 sec, f/8, 400mm at ISO 400


  1. Beautiful, perfect ending to the day......

  2. Certainly has that winding-down, end-of-the-day feel to it. Very nice shot - and blog.
