Red Kites

Red Kites over the Blue Lagoon

Red Kites flying over the Blue Lagoon, Milton Keynes, yesterday whilst on a walk with my dog yesterday.   Fortunately, I had the right equipment with me, Lumix G9 and paired with my Leica 100--400mm telephoto.  This is an awesome combination as it brings portability, fantastic autofocus  and responsiveness.  All shot handheld at around ISO 1000, 1000th second.

This article gives interesting information about these birds.  The Chilterns and Milton Keynes are is a good location for to see these raptors.
