Red Kite (Milvus milvus)

With grey rain clouds hovering over Norfolk today, I had some time to look again through the results of an afternoon spent photographing Red Kites in The Chilterns at the end of last month. This selection – all of them of the same bird (note the identifying chink in the flight feathers or remiges at the tip of the bird's right wing) – were taken while it made just two circles over a cottage garden where, presumably, the bird had picked up scraps at some point in the past.

  1. The Red Kite in all her glory. The images are breathtaking.
    I have never understood how anyone can hurt these beautiful birds, but then I would not harm anything. Everything is here for a reason.......

    Tku once again for sharing your wonderful talent with us.....
