Red Kite Farm, Cambridgeshire, 3rd November 2018

Over a number of years driving up and down the A1, I had noticed that the common bird of prey seemed to be the Red Kite. More recently, I learnt these magnificent birds could be seen in groups at a local location.

One afternoon I set off looking for them.

The Location

My source told me that at this farm there is a lady that leaves feed out for the birds. Some people have reported a handful of birds at one time, others 40 or 50 (I have on subsequent journeys seen groups this big over the A1).

I went there not expecting to see anything, and have a hard time catching them. I ended up being surprised.

Upon my arrival. There must have been 10 or so birds in the sky, with a similar number sitting around on the ground. I was able to pick my spot and stay there.

The Photos

I’m not going to lie, but I was almost put off my stride by how easy it was to see the birds, and how close they where.

I was expecting to have to hide, to be challenged to get them, but they were so close in some cases that even zoomed all the way out I couldn’t get them in my viewfinder.

I ended up taking a couple of hundred images. Some ended up being trash as you would expect, but I did manage to capture some of my best bird shots to date.

Here they are

Finale

I know this is a brief little report, but hopefully you enjoy the pictures. I plan to go back to the location again as it is easy for me to get to and the results are pleasing.

As always, thanks for looking.
