|Red Kite flying the red flag. Record shot|
The Red Kite was sporting red wing tags indicating that it came from a nest in central scotland and was hatched in 2003. I can't quite make out the numbers, possibly 17. The Osprey appears to be unringed.
The gulls really weren't too keen on the Osprey, as weren't the Peregrine and Buzzard.
