Here be Dragons

There’s something about Red Kites I just love. I remember the very first time I saw one. They weren’t as prolific as they are now. Taking a holiday into Wales to see one was the only real chance I would have. It took my breath away. High above Tregaron bog, it was carrying a snake. I could make out the outline of a forked tail and the still live whipping tail of the reptile; the whole thing reminiscent of a flying dragon.

We watched around a hundred and fifty to two hundred Kites on our recent tour to Wales (details here). No dragons but some wonderful photographic opportunities.
