A Red Kite photographed during one of our visits to the Brecon Beacons
This is absolutely stunning viewed large. Superb timing, lovely detail.
This is superb, well spotted and caught.
I'm in awe! Excellent.
Good timing and a fine inflight capture
Great detail captured in the plumage Barrie, and good catch light in the eye
well done with the background too, nicely blurred
Absolutely stunning image, Fantastic.
Superb shot !!!.....beautiful quality !!!......but this bird is a Buzzard....Red Kites have distinct forked tail feathers !!
No sorry, it is definitely a Red Kite
OK, fair enough !!.....you were there & I wasn't !......I've never seen this tail-feather configuration on a Kite before ?, but doing a bit of research
via Google etc., I've found 2 other photographs which are similar to your shot......so a new one on me !!......Red Kite it is !!!!
Perhaps you've found a new sub-species of a "Fan-tailed-Kite" ????????........cracking shot either way !!!!
If the forked tail feathers, which a Red Kite definitely has, were angled towards the camera at the point of shutter release then the impression of a Buzzard-like tail would clearly occur. Cheers.......
Brilliant image, well done!
