Morning

As Wozie has posted we went for a walk in the afternoon but during the morning whilst looking out the side hatch, I saw this2010_0404KidlingtonReserveWal0002

a Buzzard Red Kite, see comments.

I realise in this photo it is a ‘dot’, he was not alone, there were two others, all circling together, higher and higher till they flew downwind at very high speed.

Mesmerising.

That is a red kite (note forked tail) not a buzzard!

As you say they are very small in the photos, but I think they may be Red Kites.

Here is one I saw earlier

Yup we looks like a red kite to me - hundreds of them at Stokenchurch near where Getty reintroduced them, but I have recently spotted them as far north as the Cherwell Valley services on the M40 so I suspect the motorway suits them and they are spreading out along this and the A34.
