Red kites...

The red kites were out flying high in the sun this afternoon.

In the spring they nest in our beech woods and sometime we see more than 10 circling above the house and woods.

Today they were very vocal with their 'mewing' sounds. They are all busy selecting mates now its the breeding season and were showing off quite blatantly, ducking and diving.
