red kite

I was out on an evening walk and watched this red kite snatch the prey of two buzzards. I wish I had a big lens....



Meanwhile, if you have some time to spare and love the Andes or the rainforest please visit my picture book about my fieldwork in the Peruvian cloud forest:

I've entered the blurb competition, and if you feel generous please vote for me.

Or just go straight back to Skywatch Friday for more thrilling skies from all over the world.
