Red Kites joined us for lunch

It's such a lovely day today that we sat outside for lunch. We had salad and cold chicken legs, so threw the bones on the lawn in front of us to see what would happen. The lawn has quite a lot of over hanging trees and is covered in toys (a paddling pool, swing ball, bouncy castle, trampoline and a space hopper), so didn't think any Red Kites would be able to get through that lot to pick up the chicken. We were wrong ... they swooped down, almost completely silently, grabbed the chicken and were off again. If you weren't looking, you wouldn't know they had been there. They are so fast and so quiet!


I took this off a video, so it's a bit blurry

This one was hidden behind a geranium!
