Pair of Red Kites, Brisworthy, Dartmoor

Driving my car I spotted a pair of Red Kites at Brisworthy, South Dartmoor (Meavy area).  First time I've ever seen them. Parked up quickly, grabbed camera and managed a few shots as they wheeled around - disappearing and reappearing. Not great photos - wrong lens, so had to blow these up, but OK for identification purposes. Amazing sight!
