Red Kites

I went for a walk at the weekend and came across some Red Kites. Which I've talked about before, but never managed to take any photos of. It was easier with the iPod, which has a better zoom and I could just point it at the sky and click a lot.

The best one to show the colouring is this one (although I wouldn't zoom in all the way, as it's also blurry):

We often get Red Kites round where I live. They stand out, what with the redness. But often I'll be outside or look outside and see one fly over or circling the area.

Tonight though I saw one on my way home. There was a dead thing in the middle of the road and it probably wanted that but rush hour wasn't the best time to try. And then I got home and there were four or five circling round! I've never seen as many in one go. One of them came nearly as low as the roof top and that was a big bird. That particular one was screeching and I realised I'd heard that sound before, just never thought about what made it, beyond some sort of bird. So now I know.
