Thought this might be of interest, one of the Leucistic Red Kites they get at Gigrin Farm. I know the picture could be a deal sharper but it is unusual.

I'd have taken a shot half this sharp. That's a rare sighting in deed. It never came out when I was there, & I was talking to someone who'd been 3 times & not seen it.

Thanks for your comment davey-griffo, I really was lucky and I have some other shots if you would be interested j762532@aol.com. It feeds on the ground which is unusual too and seems to only have developed this recently.
