Glorious kites

Sunday was a day of pure, non-stop sunshine. A green woodpecker called in the distance and the weather alone was enough to bring a smile to my face however, there was something even better to get me grinning like a Cheshire Cat - oodles of red kites soaring about in the blue above! I was working for the day at Greys Court, Henley-on-Thames, a gorgeous place well known for its resident kites. Through the day we watched them carrying sticks and making food passes and chasing each other about, all right overhead. No fancy pics today but I did get this snap of one passing over as we packed up.

Here is a cracking shot from Justin Burt of a bird in one of the pines at Greys Court just a few weeks back!
