Red Kite Milvus milvus
Taken at today's mini-meet at the National Bird of Prey Centre, Newent.
Good to meet Miles at last today, though it felt like we'd been friends for ages with the jokes we have shared on here and by email.
Took loads of shots of the red kite, mostly against the blue sky, but I thought the few I captured against the dark foliage seemed to work really well.
I realise it won't be as strong a thumbnail without the blue sky, but let's see what happens.
Thanks for all the recent comments, gonna be a bit busy again for the next few weeks, so more anonymous clicking for me I'm afraid. Should get some time tomorrow to have a good look through what I've missed recently. If I can get my new website finished.
