    Lots of them around here. I saw one really low in the middle of the village the other day. Not much higher than rooftop level. Lovely birds.

    Quite possible you did see a Red Kite Bill, they are spreading out allover now and very obvious with their colouring and concave tail.(y)

    plenty here to at Corby (re-introduced a few years ago and they have well and truly established themselves). I love watching the younger one's play, their flying skills are amazing.
    Did you know they are much bigger than the Common Buzzard !

    Just walked out into the garden and could see 4 in the sky.

    There's dozens of them round here :)

    How lovely, I saw one for the first time above a friend's house in West Wales, have seen them now above our house. They have a sort of whistling call.

    Yes, it would be unusual in your area, 'cos your profile says 'under the van' ! :confused: :rofl:
