Had a day out at 'Feathers & Fur' near Reading. My husband got to hold a couple of owls and a harris hawk. The red kite is just beautiful though. We have a few where I live, but they seem to taunt me by flying close when I have no hope of grabbing the camera! One day, I WILL shoot one! (not literally).

Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed. Comments on how to improve would be great. Bird photography is not my 'thing' but I really enjoyed the morning. My husband wants to go again....
