In the summer of 1999 twenty-one young red kites were released into the wild on the Harewood Estate as part of a reintroduction programme, and now is one of the top British sites to see these stunning birds of prey. Lucky for me I don’t have to travel that far, as they now grace the skies over East Leeds following the road network in search of road kill.

On many occasion they fly over my garden, but I’ve never really got a truly good photo of them, …until today, and I wasn’t even in the garden, but at the local Tesco’s filling the car up with petrol, I’d finished and Wifey was inside paying for the fuel when I noticed the Policewoman opposite staring into the sky, I turned and witness this majestic Red Kite Eagle heading my way, I instantly whipped out the camera from the back seat of the car and started snapping…enjoy the results, as the policewoman did when she wanted to see if I’d got a good shot.
