Red Kites are magnificent birds - A shame the weather didn't allow the camera to do them justice !! Having 1 bird perched was nice. having it joined by a second bird when it returned to the air was spectaculour.
Living in Bedford I am fortunate enough to be able to spend a lot of time on the Norfolk Coast, based around Snettisham and Holme. Most of my photos are likely to come from Norfolk but Bedfordshire does throw up some surprises occasionally, including our best Garden bird, my first Firecrest, feeding on bushes 15 feet from the back window.
