Red Kites over Earley - Reading - 20.4.2015

Red Kites over Earley - Reading - 20.4.2015
I didn't get one decent shot of these great-looking birds. I haven't got the technical know-how or probably the right equipment to follow birds in the sky. But I thought that in this case quantity won over quality. Yes they are all Red Kites. Nothing else hangs around when they are there and I have zoomed in on this image, and some showing smaller numbers of these birds, and they are clearly Red Kites from their shape and especially their tails.

Interesting! I've never seen as many as this at a time, usually only 1 or 2, sometimes as many as 4. Obviously anywhere in and around the Chilterns one would expect to see them, but taking good photos is difficult - great fun though!

I was surprised by the numbers. My sister who lives nearby said that there were lots about, encouraged by people feeding them it seems. I had seen odd ones and twos before there and on the Reading to Oxford road.
