Red KIte and Chick

The local woods have become home to a red kite - this has displaced the buzzard that nested in this spot for the last few years (it is now nesting further along). The little chick is coming along very nicely. It is on it's own (we have never seen more than one from the start). Looking forward to seeing this one fledge in due course but just watching it grow will be fun. Between this and the woodpecker chicks (see facebook page if need be) I was too long in the woods so will pour extra large G&T for Sarah to earn some brownie points!
