    Are there Red Kites near Stansted Airport?

    In November of last year, I drove to Stansted Airport in London to get to Poland. The four hours staring out the window were very productive mostly due to the good weather with three kestrels hovering over the motorway (my first), two buzzards, one flying relatively low over a motorway bridge...

    I saw about 20+ in a tree, probably the most I've seen at once, let alone perched! They kept flying off and then returning, although the lighting wasn't great, I got one or two acceptable shots!

    Red Kite for someone special :)

    I have just realized that I don't usually post my art here... so I am posting this because I am quite proud of this quick artwork of mine.

    Golden Eagles spotted Crawleyside/Stanhope Moor Durham?

    Re: Photos taken yesterday when out on a bike ride around Stanhope Moor of Durham Hi there, I'm new to the forum with a modest interest in UK birds, nothing too fanatical. However, after sharing these photos with my dad initially thinking it was a Red Kite or perhaps Marsh Harrier, my dad now...

    Juvenile Buzzard?

    Hi all. It turns out that harvesting brings out the birds of prey, I guess it flushes out all sorts of critters. I watched this bird on the ground for quite some time before three Red Kites turned up and either wanted its meal or didn't like its company. That said, I'm not sure what the bird is...

    Another shot of the Red Kite which was here on 5 May. It (or another) was here two days later, on 7 May. An auspicious start to the summer, I hope. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well. John
