Went up to Gigrin on the weekend to have a look at the Black kite that has been spotted there since Xmas...got great views of it but haven't found an image worth posting - perhaps I will have another look through them again. Anyway, quite liked this flight shot of a Red Kite, thanks for looking.

Cracking image. I have a pair of red kites that flew above my house, but they are never low enough for this amount of detail.

I would love to get an image like this.
