Red Kite (1)
Milvus milvus
Did I ever get lucky today. My first Red Kite sighting, and just about missed getting a photo. The bird is distinguished from the Black Kite by more rufous plumage and a deeply forked tail. Seen flying over Frankfurt Zepplinheim forest which has both an extensive tract of old forest and also open fields..
