I have in the past hour spotted 2 red kites hovering very low over a field near Monk Sherborne, Hampshire. In fact only 8 foot of the ground and about that distance away from myself. Such a great sighting, I stopped to watch them until another driver came up behind me. Luckily I was only on a country lane just off the A339 from Newbury. Shame I didn’t have my camera as my 200mm would have been all I needed to have captured a great shot!
