Duxford Kite!

A quick trip to Maidenhead always produces loads of Red Kites: today we've seen a couple of dozen without trying. But the first was unexpected, since it did something I've personally never seen: it swooped down onto the A505 just west of IWM Duxford  and landed briefly on a rabbit carcase!
We stopped to try for a photo, but, startled by my opening the car door, it took off and flew away westwards!

I wonder how long it'll be before Kites become as familiar a site in Norfolk as they are in Bucks?

The first photo is the Duxford kite, the next few are from Mum-in-Law's back garden!

David, I wonder if it's the same one I saw recently by Therfield Heath, just of the A505 at Royston. You can see a couple of shots of it at http://www.rsamuel.me.uk/Birds/

Hi Bob!
I bet it is! We saw this quite near the pet crematorium...
