    Might not be very special to some but they haven't been around this area much.
    There were two of them. One was playing with a Crow and the other just wheeling about. I laid down on the ground and they both came to have a look at me, hovering right above me just above treetop height :) I was just moving of when they tumbled together in play :) :)

    Magical :)

    Just wish I had a better camera :eek:

    Wow you lucky thing! That is one of my fave birds. I hope they colonize my area soon, they're not too far away so fingers crossed.

    Best camera is in the mind anyway. I didn't know they were nosey - I'll have to try lying down if I can next time I see one. They are lovely to watch though :)

    When I was standing up, they just gave me a cursory look, obviously knew that humans aren't worth the effort. Lying down though, you become a curiosity. :)

    Swallows are another that I like to fool. It's amazing when they fly past at speed just inches from your face :)

    Oh yes about the best camera, mine could see every feather and colour

    Not sure I think they are nosy when you lie down more like they're looking at a you as a food source :D

    There are quite a few Kites and Buzzards round here now, I love seeing them.

    Beautiful bird :)

    We have family friends in Oxford and it was always exciting to get to the point on the motorway where these amazing birds could be seen soaring above - still is, even at nearly 54, actually ;)

    I spotted a Sparrow Hawk on the grass in my garden the other day - another spectacular bird.
