Afternoon All,

Been trying to make some space on my hard drive today so been deleting lots...going through a folder of stuff from Gigrin found a few shots of a Red Kite that caught my eye - it appears there is either a tag attached to the body of this or something a little more sinister has happened to him...if you look to the one side of his feet you will see something sticking out...can't quite make it out, any thoughts ?

Crop a little tight on the bird but the full shot left hardly any room on the top of the image but I wanted to show the appendage.

An excellent inflight capture, this majestic bird stands out so well against that clear blue sky

Stunning frame filling shot Alan. A superb capture with an excellent angle on the presentation. That item on the RH side of the bird ( if that is what you are referring to ) looks rather like an arrow to me. Hope I am wrong.

Hi Alan
Excellent detail and the crop works, lots of these Kites are tagged but mostly on the wing so not sure.

Regards

Trev.
