While I was growing up in Risborough, Red Kites were confined to Wales and I would annually travel to see them. How things have changed, with the successful reintrduction to England, they are now literally commoner than sparrows, well al least in my mum's garden they are. The maximum I counted in the air at once was twelve, while during three days the House Sparrows never made it to double figures! Should we be concerned for the humble House Sparrow? I for one think so!
I took loads of flight shots and never managed one sharp image, must try harder!
These two images are for my mum and the last one is absolutely true, bless her.
