Kites & Buzzards


The other day my wife and I were watching this tractor raking up the hay in a field nearby


while overhead an aerial display was going on





The Red Kites were swooping after small rodents like mice & voles





There was more than one 









 So here are a few of the photos I took of them





Red Kite after taking a swipe at the mice



A buzzard flying past













Then landing in a tree




Kite on the wing














Red Kite trailing Grass





A kite and Buzzard flying past each other and another pair of kites one trailing a grass tail












This crow tried to dive bomb the Kite, he just swerved out the way as you can see.


 Not sure if he has a mouse of is claring the grass away, eitherway this is how they feed on the wing





Another taking a peck at somthing while flying
I'll finish with the buzzard as he few away.

  5. You got some fantastic shots of the show in the sky. I bet the tractor was stirring up the field mice so the birds were taking advantage.

  8. Nice work Bill. I think we have so many Buzzards around here because there are no kites. It will be interesting to see what happens when we get kites - if we do.
