Red Kite gallery

Here are some great pictures of Red Kites.

Those flying were taken by Andrew Milloy in a village not far from us. They are not our Kites, i.e. the pair from our meadow, but they do look great in flight, don't they.

The nest is the nest in our meadow, where you can clearly see two chicks. These were taken by Mark Walters.

Sadly I found one of them dead at the foot of the tree a few days ago, but the adults are still visiting so we assume the other is still alive.

Correction, when the Derringtons were here last weekend, they saw and photographed two chicks in the nest still. There must have been three to begin with.
