Here is a picture my Dad took of a Red Kite flying over Chalfont on Saturday, it is a bit far away I know but you can tell it is a Red Kite.

Ive seen them over Chalfont for over a year now, most of the time they are high up in the air, saw one last week which was flying low being hassled by a magpie, the kite did not seem bothered or did it take offensive action, it just got on with gliding on the thermals
Always remember that you're unique. Just like everyone else.

Yep - a Red Kite has a very distinctive V-shaped tail...Dan Dan's bird is definitely one of these...but don't worry folks, they are carrion eaters so bunnies etc should be safe!
