2 Red kites in Exeter

My daughter and I were sunbathing in the garden when a rather large bird flew above us, we live pretty far into the city so we don’t see many birds of prey. I went to get my binoculars when another one flew over at the height of our 2 story house. We could clearly see the kites forked tail and white underwings. It was magnificent, the 2 then flew up past our eyeline.
