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

Then landing in a tree

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.

    One of those wonderful moments Nature offers up - right place and camera to hand. Fabulous!!! YAM xx

  5. Great series!!Boom, Bobbi and Gary.

  6. 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.

  7. They're very handsome birds!

  8. What a fantastic series of photos! These birds are so beautiful and fascinating! Amazing!

  9. What a show! And you didn't have to pay admission either.

  10. 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.
