Close encounter

by Barbara Chapman on 07/14/15

Mid-afternoon on Sunday 12th June, two kites ( one chasing the other) flew low over my house and garden from the direction of Hobbs Hill Wood School's fields opposite. (Leverstock Green bordering on Bennetts End) I was working at my lap-top in the lounge and could see them clearly through the window.   This is not unusual, but on this occasion they were lower than is usually the case, and I could clearly see the colours and markings on their feathers in the few seconds I could see them through the window.

Saw this very tatty Kite this afternoon. I've cropped as close as I dare - he was very high. Not much left of him really!! Kite was over Longdean Pastures 3.40 pm and the Buzzard over Bunkers Open Space 5.55 pm
