Black Kite ............ 20 minutes from home

Having been tied up most of the weekend with family stuff plus other bits and bobs i finally had time to pop out and see the Black Kite which was only 20 mins from my house , i got there at 6.55 pm and joined 4 other birders and after a 15 minute wait one of the birders picked it out quite low flying between the trees , It eventually flew low over an open field .

I watched the Black Kite   soaring around gaining height and eventually giving superb views through the scope , this is my second Black Kite in the UK and both of them have been in Kent.

Just to say i have had a good response to the " Just for a bit of fun " quiz and will post the correct answer and names of everyone who has got it right next Saturday , so you still have until then to give it a go .
