Red kite at Harewood

I photographed this magnificent bird to-day at the Harewood estate, near Harrogate, UK. A group have been successfully re-introduced to this area and can be seen most days, although usually at a significant height. This bird was about 75 - 100 feet high and I took only 2 shots in focus tracking. Fortunately, both were sharp.
