    Hi Ray,

    It is starting to feel like you thread has rolled on. Well done to capture your kestral, I've tried but I'm just to noisy :eek:

    As for red kites, I'm lucky to be near Rockingham forest where a new nest site was set up and it's not uncommon to have four or more drifiting around :D Wonderful just to watch and very very agile!

    Tony.

    There is little doubt that these fantastic birds are persecuted on grouse moors. But actually the biggest problem is in England. It is frankly astonnishing and a national embaresment that there are only 10 pairs of these birds in England. There is sufficient habitat to support hundreds of them. Every year young birds arrive and try to breed and for un-natural reasons...they disapear?

    Ochh dont worry about it Ray its just me going of on a related rant...no need to appologies for my behaviour. You have probably noticed that in the lounge (and everywhere else!!) we tend to talk around threads and dont necessarily stick to the theme! I think thats what makes this place more interesting.....

    We have a number of Red Kites here in West Yorkshire, a number of pairs were released around Harewood House (Eccup Reservoir), and I've seen the odd one in the Wharfe Valley, but never as far as Ribble Valley.

    We have just come home from North Yorkshire, but saw very little interesting bird life. There were plenty of lapwings and curlews on the moorland, but always too far away to get a close look at. Similarly with birds of prey, they were always at a long distance.

    Elsie spotted this bluetit's nest as we walked through a wood and we watched them feeding and cleaning their brood for a while.

    Every quiet patch of water seemed to have the ubiquitous Canada Geese .

    We watched Swallows and Martins dipping into the pond at Whitby Abbey but I could have done with a longer lens and a quicker camera to catch them.

    Yes. Methinks he doth protest too much. If he's not careful he'll be accused of ovophilia ( a new word I've just invented from 'ovine'= sheep and 'philia' = lover) :eek: :D
