    Danny – just to thank you for showing me that red kite fishing photo this morning when we were watching the waxwings. it might not surprise you that since I had not heard of them doing this, I just got round to googling “red kite fishing” and almost immediately found my way to your website and seeing the sequence of photos, including the one you showed me, was very interesting and I am going to show your web page to a few friends who birdwatch. Also saw your waxwing pic on your Facebook page from this morning. Hope you see lots more over the coming weeks – we (husband Simon in hat with Canon) hope to. Kind regards, Linda

    PS We once watched (some years ago, at College Lake) a heron catch a young coot, drown it, and swallow it whole (not without some difficulty) – but we were in a hide full of birdwatchers with just optics and no cameras – although frankly we were all so aghast at the spectacle I am not sure we would have photographed it then (we would now!)

    No need to reply – just wanted to thank you for informing me about red kites and fishing.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think!
