Red kite at night Jonathan' delight

I am currently delivering Focus leaflets in the Derwent Valley. The sun has gone down but there is still some daylight. And swooping above me are two red kites. These birds of prey have been reintroduced into the area after an absence of 200 years. It's great to see them back. I've also seen them hovering over the allotment in Sunniside recently but I haven't seen then this close to houses before.

We saw a huge Red Kite bird of prey while visiting Tanfield Railway. They are awsome. Lovely to see them back.
