Red Kite - more than a close up

I was standing on a bridge over the River Nene watching this Red Kite being mobbed by Crows in the middle distance.

The action was getting closer and closer.

Next thing I knew the Kite peeled away and was heading straight for and over me.

I threw up my camera ( errrrr ..... not literally ) and started trying to track the bird, when I looked at the images after the encounter they were all over the place as it was so very close.

This image was more than full frame and surprisingly in focus so I am posting it largely untouched with a bit of sharpening, if you look closely you can actually see a small lesion in the birds eye.
