Savill Garden’s Red Kite

Over the bank-holiday weekend we took a walk around Savill Garden’s near Englefield Green. The day was fairly warm with mixed cloud and sun, which made it sometimes great for photos, sometimes not so.

Roughly half way through our walk near to the north west most point of the gardens, near a brick summer house, I looked up overhead to see a large bird gliding almost stationary.

As I was the one with the zoom lens on at the time, I pointed the camera skywards and started snapping. Turns out the first shot was actually the best one, the rest fell fowl of the area focus I had setup on the camera when really I wanted to have spot focus. After a short discussion trying to identify the bird, I believe it to be a Red Kite
