WE visited the Red Kite centre at Ardgaty, a wonderful experience watching from the hide as more than 40 kites circled overhead then swooped down for the food set out by the rangers. Apparently they put out a minimal amount of food so the birds won't become dependant on the centre staff for their food.

I hope to be back there . This was my first visit and I really enjoyed it although have lots to learn. Would love a faster lens but will need to save up for a few years.
many thanks everyone for your kind and positive comments.
