Magnificent Red Kite

By johnjo58
These guy has a majestic air about him. This one was a long time coming and represents many hours in the hide. These birds are just amazing and to think twenty years very rare indeed. They cut the hay at the weekend and the farmer spotted 17 flying over one field.

Thanks for taking the time to look, all C&C welcome

A cracking shot of this majestic bird, the detail and colours in the plumage are tremendous. It's unusual to see a picture of one on the ground
