Red Kite Fest



Red Kites are one of my favourite raptors but are not easy to see or photograph locally. The opportunity to view and photograph these fantastic birds at close quarters arose when a group of Talk Photography members arranged a meet at a private site near Stokenheath in the Chilterns. Meeting up with Di Stone en-route, a great day was had with about forty birds performing for the twelve group members.

Lovely photos Kevin, sounds like you had a great time.

I visited Watlington Hill in the Chilterns two years ago and they were everywhere, magnificent creatures! Hoping to go again this year.
