Hi there. I know there are thread similar to this, but I couldn't work out how to add a photo as a reply, so here goes:
Seen in North Dorset earlier on today, is this a Red Kite does anyone reckon? Appeared to me very graceful, larger than a buzzard but not hugely common in Dorset I don't think. Couldn't quite determine the "kite mark" because of the angle of the photo.
Photos are cropped to try and make identification easier, sorry for poor quality. Any help would be great, thanks all in advance
