    I was sitting there next to my camera today, with my remote in one hand and my other on the tripod ready to pan right to left or left to right.

    He didn't appear..................

    That's disappointing for you. What's the world coming to when you can't even depend on a red kite!

    The darn fool came when I was on my exercise bike. He knows I take the meat in then because otherwise the crows and magpies would get it.

    I don't know. Today was meant to be the sunniest day of the week, and I saw him very high up, flirting with his lady friend. Food was the last thing on his mind.

    I wonder if you have considered moving the camera so the bird is flying towards it rather across the lens.
    Sun lounger you do live in the UK don't you we are still in winter up north 😄
    you never know he may bring his lady friend for lunch tomorrow fingers crossed.

    Yes I thought about this today. I could go out and put the camera behind a bush on the path.

    When I said he still comes down even when I'm on my sun lounger, I meant when it was sunny, last summer, not now. However, he doesn't like it so much when I hold my camera while I'm outside in the garden.

    What an amazing experience. We used to have a Sparrowhawk come into our garden (in Devon) and she was fast too. Would even come in if I was in the garden myself, but I think that was more because she was skimming the hedgerows and wouldn't have seen me until very late. You are very lucky to get a Red Kite come in.

    I can offer no thoughts on camera stuff - I'm a master of taking shots of my feet and various random walls.
