Having a preen



Now this Red Kite comes and sits in the fir tree near my house (two doors down) they are one of the most successful reintroductions of  a bird the country has know and they were reintroduced not far from where I live. It has to be my favorite bird and I never cease to stop for a moment to watch them.

 Preening its feathers
 Looking around
 and my attempt to catch it taking off. I think they are a majestic bird.

    1. Yes Henley has it's fair share of them but Christmas Common in Watlington is the place though I know of a place they nest where I keep my caravan. I see your getting to near where I live now then.
