I was just walking my dog along worlds end lane in green street green/chelsfield area, and soaring directly above my head was what appeared to be a red kite. Buzzards are very common especially near the motorway but to see the distinctive colouring and kite shaped tail was unmistakable. A really exciting spot for me, especially in the kent/london border area, I only thought these birds were up north and Wales? if only my phone camera was better quality, but it was a lot closer to me than the photos portray.
