Red Kite in Pembrokeshire

Here we see a Red Kite flying over the field behind my parents' garden in Pembrokeshire, Wales. The field is in the process of being harvested and the kite is following the combine harvester and tractors presumably to see if anything scavagable has been turned up by the farm machinery.

Red kites have been succesfully re-introduced to England and Scotland in recent years - there are plenty to be seen back home in Oxfordshire - but here in Wales there's been a population of them all along, although admittedly the numbers are much better these days than they have been.


  1. Well captured. What a lovely site to watch

  2. Excellent capture of red kites in a wild setting - loved the tractor coming into shot :-D
