Roosting Kites

Decent numbers of Red Kites roosting in the Derwent valley at the moment, with up to 30+ the last few days.

Today 6 off Hollinhill Lane in a tree and another tree with 5 at Victoria Gareside, 6 at Barlow Fell and 1+ at Far Pasture, the latter with a Common Buzzard

The full crop bird is the top most one of the group of 6:
