Venus Pool - Red Kites

'Make hay while the sun shines' is an appropriate proverb, spurring the local farmer into action 'harvesting' the grass for winter cattle fodder over the past couple of days at Venus Pool. The activity had attracted the attention of an estimated six Red kites too. plenty of flight opportunities albeit often distant...

A tail to be proud of, acting as a rudder for their acrobatic flight when feeding...

Upperwing shots were hard to come by but here's a distant one!

A nice head on moment as this one flew over the hide!

Not exactly Gigrin numbers but the best views I think I've ever had at the Patch!!
