Red Kites are soaring

As we drove up the M40 yesterday through the Chilterns we were amazed at the number of Red Kites that we saw. This fabulous bird of prey was introduced back into the UK a few years ago and recently its population in southern England has boomed. We probably saw about 15 yesterday during our journey.

Last year we spotted 20 Red Kites in one single group that were all gliding over a large field when we went across country (once again the Chilterns).
