RED KITES over South Brent

Early this evening I had four Red Kites soaring above the house in South Brent, spectacular sight and not something I ever expected to see here, they rose effortlessly on the thermals until simply lost from sight.

Earlier in the day had a Sparrowhawk snatch a Mistle Thrush chick from its nest despite the noisy protests and mobbing / chasing by both parent birds.
