English birds today


This video says about itself:

Red Kites in Slow Motion – The Slow Mo Guys

In this video, Gav gives us a look at a group of the birds of prey known as Red Kites as they swoop for bacon scraps outside a cafe.

This was shot at 2500fps (100 times slower than real-time).

Robert John Martin, from Surrey in England, reports on Twitter today:

Staines Moor 14:00 – 16:30 Red Kite 2; Little Egret 2; Hobby 2; Common Buzzard 1; Common Tern 3.

  1. I saw one the other day, heading towards Much Wenlock. There’s a colony in Craven Arms (not sure why unless they’ve spread there from Wales) but now they are moving up Corvedale. Exciting. We don’t have any outdoor cafes in the town! I did go to a diplomatic garden party do in Nairobi where black kites were dive bombing the guests plates. It livened things up a bit amongst the great and the good.
