On the way home from working in Northampton I had the opportunity to take a few shots of the Red Kites along and just off the A43 around the Bulwick and Blatherwycke area. A few shots below all but first pic are of the same bird that was hunting low over a farm yard next to Blatherwycke lakes.BlatherRK8713g BlatherRK8713 BlatherRK8713b BlatherRK8713c BlatherRK8713d BlatherRK8713eThen when back in Grantham I met up with Joe Stockil for my first guided tour of Area 51, we had a great time and below you can see a few shots I took, yep unusually I had my camera with me 🙂
