Heading back to Craven Arms on the back of a mornings walk with the Crossbills & Great Grey Shrike about half way along the road from Clun I had to do a pretty quick pull over again, this time in a gateway to the side of the main road. Hazards on I jumped out of the car armed with the camera, able to lean on the 5 bar gate and shoot the 5 Red Kites that had been soaring over the road a minute or too previously. The light was absolutely perfect and I don't think I've ever seen Kites fly so low in a place where they haven't been fed for the purpose. They all seemed to be after a bit of white plastic as you can see below. We had awesome views and at one stage thought one particular Kite was heading through the window of the Car.
