SOLWAY: Red Kite Feeding Station 14 Oct 2007.
We left Mersehead for the Red Kite feeding station west of Loch Ken, arriving just after 2 PM. They had already started feeding and as we approached the farm we could see kites congregating above.
'Scoping from the road I attemped my first digiscoping flights shots, some of which came out OK.
At any one time there were around 30 kites above the feeding station, some swooping down in front of the hide.
We had a late lunch in the car watcing the spectacle and left for Loch Ken after 3 PM. There were still plenty of kites around when we departed.
