Having posted a Buzzard yesterday ..... today a Red Kite.

As with Common Buzzards, Red Kites are widespread here in East Northamptonshire.

This image highlights very clearly that the directional manoeuvrability and aerial attitude of the bird is very much controlled by its tail.

Tremendous looking birds with their silver heads and grey / green eyes.

Pairing up for the breeding season is well underway with '' sky dancing '' a regular sighting in the area.
