  1. Great pictures - find it hard to believe that they can be seen on reserves in Gateshead where I used to work!

    1. Thanks Stewart! Yes, I still find it amazing how relatively 'common' they are around Peterborough. A great sight though!

    1. It certainly is Anu! It used to be very rare here, down to just 5 birds in the whole of the country, but they have been gradually re-introduced and are now thriving!

  7. I was lucky enough to photo a red kite in Peterborough on Sunday, I'm not sure if you allow anyone to post an image to your site in the comments box?
