Red Kites in Haddenham 01

Tony Byrnes, a resident of Haddenham, has recently captured slow motion video footage of Red Kites swooping and collecting dead mice from his back garden, using a GoPro digital video camera.

His son Ashley has edited and uploaded the footage to Youtube, and it offers fascinating viewing of these majestic birds, which have been so successfully re-introduced into the Buckinghamshire countryside.

Apparently all the dead mice used as bait to entice the birds for filming were captured from inside Tony's house. So, if you know where he lives and you are a bit squeamish when it comes to mice, we suggest you give his place a wide berth!!

The Youtube footage is available to view here
