    Great Tit.

  • The Red Kite is heralded as one of Britain's rarest and most spectacular birds. Between 2004 and 2007 the Northern Kites Project re-introduced 94 red kites into the lower Derwent Valley. This was the first time they'd been re-introduced into a semi-urban area.
    Anyhoo as I was driving around the back of Blaydon/Winlaton earlier I caught sight of these two beauties.
  • The Great Tits are lovely but the Red Kites are beautiful Michael, well caught.

    Michael, I'm not sure I  would agree that Red Kites are one of Britain's rarest birds. Since reintroduction in many locations they can be quite common but sometimes localised and slow to spread. I live in the Thames Valley not far from the Chiltern's  reintroduction and they are absolutely everywhere. In fact I regard them almost as garden birds flying over my house on a daily basis. However, I would agree that they are one of Britain's most spectacular birds and I don't tire of seeing them with their wonderful aeronautical skills.. 

    Nice shots and I hope you see many more of them as they seem to be thriving in most places except where persecution still exists.

  • Male Chaffinch.

  • Very nice and nice to see the legs are clean, none of that dreaded fungus disease.

    Thanks Jim & I haven't seen many so I guess it's not that prolific in the NE.
