Red Kite - Milano Real ♂ (Milvus milvus)

Dutch: Rode Wouw

 

Very thrilled with this hunting Red Kite, my first ever capture of this spectacularly beautiful raptor bird.

 

Taken in Nature Reserve La Doñana in Southern Spain. Red kites are only very sporadically seen in The Netherlands and don't breed there at all.
