Red Kite, Gainsborough

Driving through Gainsborough on the way to see the bee-eaters when Simon shouted "red kite" and there swooping onto Lea Road was this red kite. An emergency stop in traffic near the train station, so we could watch this kite. It flew inbetween the houses, over the road and round again for a while before it flew up over the houses towards the landfill site and lost to view. A good start to an excellent day !
