Can anyone identify these two birds of prey please.
Pretty confident that the second one is a Red Kite as the nesting pair are often observed by the RSPB and they have a watch tower in the location however the second I am not sure about. It was a very very large bird much bigger than the Kite and our usual Buzzards and didn't see any white flashing on the underside other than on the tail. The size of the bird was only really appreciated as he flew in over the trees. Sorry for the poor quality but they were soaring very high and was zoomed out max at 400mm
