Early Morning

I got out and about early on Saturday , i was out to count Chats on the mountain above Wyllie , the sun was out and it looked like spring was finally here. Walking from the car a movement caught my eye, a fox was hunting in a rough field next to me , i stepped back into cover and sorted the camera out , managing to catch the fox walking towards me.

As i walked around looking for the Wheatears, Stonechats and Whinchats , i was surprised to see a pair of Kites wheeling above me only confirming that they are now moving out of their normal ranges.

I,ve often passed by Gigrin farm Rhayader, and never gone to see the Red Kites feeding, 
as i was passing the other week i popped in at feeding time , which at the moment is 
i ended up in one of the hides on my own – not quite knowing what to expect , the sheer numbers coming in and feeding along with Ravens , Crows and Buzzards was amazing, 
The hard part was trying to follow and focus on one particular subject. 

Some of the Buzzards have a bit of an attitude problem
