You might see weeds, but I see wild flowers

Red Kite



The first of the month, and almost halfway through the year.


Today myself and Whisky went to Ivinghoe Beacon in search of Ring Ouzel. We managed to find one, too distant for any pictures, but never mind.

After a walk in the sun, we headed off to Pitstone Hill to see if we could find some Corn Buntings.
We managed to find one, and watched him singing in the sun.

We did see the Whinchat who's been here a couple of days too. Not close enough for decent pictures though.

After enjoying the sun for a while, we made our way back to the car, and past Incombe Hole.
A Red Kite was gliding over the 'hole', so we sat and watched for about an hour; until a bloody jogger decided to run down the hill, and walk up the otherside.

We did mange a few pictures though.








And some video







A magnificent bird.
