Salford Priors super Red Kites
On the way to the pits on Sunday one of the regular Red Kites caught my eye and given the superb weather (although cold) I thought I'd stop and watch the bird as it was very close to the road. Kites don't have the power of some raptors so have to reply on scavenging on dead carrion & earth worms but they certainly are capable of taking small voles & rodents when pushed.
On this occasion a dead lamb was the attraction and the bird was soon joined by his partner who circled the field making it amazing viewing. The Kites did have to battle with the local corvids & for a short time a Buzzard also joined in the action.
A pretty good start to Sunday morning............
