Pete I know what you mean it does become personal when it is happening to birds you know. Certainly one of our birds which died last year was one known to me as I had monitored it's nest for a couple of years. I also suspect that the last one which had been shot last month was a first year bird from a nest nearby which I had monitored and been present when it was tagged.

My sentiments entirely Keith,any right minded person would just stand and watch in admiration.Last week we were on holiday in Dumfries and Galloway and saw quite a number of these beauties which are fast becoming my favourite raptor.On a visit to the Cairnsmore of Fleet NNR among other goodies we were watching 2,poss.3, Red Kites just hunting over the in bye fields,just pure magic.
