Red kites are renowned nest predators especially of rooks and crows. … When a red kite decides not to move on but to carry on circling lazily, low over the fields, then the level of aggression will build and the interaction develop into an angry dogfight. It was therefore a thrill to photograph an aerial fight between several crows and a red kite over the nesting areas around Mount Farm lakes.
These photographs were taken in the early morning sunshine this week using a super-telephoto lens to capture the action.
They were processed in Lightroom to taste and are part of a larger sequence of images.
