Hi a huge thankyou for all comments and votes on my Red Kite it had miles more interest than I could have hoped for.

this is my last upload before I go away on holiday to hopefully get a few more good shots.

I am in a club at the Raptor foundation, where they teach you to look after the birds of prey and fly them. This is a Saker falcon from the display . Its near the end because he is getting out of breath . You can tell that because his mouth is open and his tongue is hanging out

Thanks for looking

Charlie
