Raptors at Sandon

I spent a couple of hours in the Sandon area in the aftermath of the 'Katia storm' and found lots of raptors about, the top picture is a red kite that was flying along the A505. The second, one of two female marsh harriers, this one flew directly towards me. Later on I watched it flying into the wind and it actually went backwards at times.
The small tortoiseshell was resting out of the wind.

Also of note were buzzards and a kestrel.
