I was driving not too far from home today (East Staffordshire) and spotted this Red Kite soaring around near Draycott-in-the-Clay.
I managed to get this shot on my phone which clearly shows it distinctive forked tail.
I did get home, grab a camera and return but the weather turned and a nasty blizzard came through. I didn’t manage to find it.
I will keep an eye open for it. It’s great that these once almost extinct birds are starting to appear in more and more parts of the UK.
