A Red kite Milvus milvus, from last weeks session at The Hawk Conservancy Trust

Many thanks to Jenny (Jenny-D), for her award given to my Marbled white

Off there now, to see if any have emerged today. Up to yesterday evening, there was just the solitary male flying about

A superb pose, Adrian, showing of his wonderful plumage. Hot, sunny, late 20's, light breeze. Carol

A terrific portrait of this majestic bird, the detail and clarity in the feathers is most impressive and I like the over the shoulder pose.

That is because no groundsheets from Next or bed sheets from Debenhams were rigged up to act as a "natural looking" background!WinkGrinTongue
