33 Red Kites

Lockdown birding has yielded quite a few raptors from the office and bedroom windows! Since the end of March I've had 2 Ospreys (I missed a 3rd) over the house, as well as a few Red Kites. A few became many on Sunday 10th, with 32 seen overhead between 14:40 and 15:20, and another one late afternoon. There would have been more but my view is obscured on all 4 sides so I can only see a small area of sky. Here's a pic of one of the birds which went over in April:
