Red Kites Thames@Henley 8.15 Sun3rdJuly

I am meeting up with a few well 4 or 5, fellow togs from another 4m - at the Flower Pot Pub, Nr. Henley. The landlord feeds the left overs to the Red Kites and lots of other birds join in. many very close 50ft so great photo opportunities. So Telephoto and Macro shots

Location recce. 8.30 am is when food goes out. Also, if you drive past the Pub to the river (about 200yds) there is parking for about a dozen vehicles and a field with some benches overlooking the Thames. A nice spot for breakie, as long as it doesn't rain. Intend to park by the river and get there about 08.15. The Pub does rather good lunches and is popular with Walkers and Cyclists

Let me know if your planning to join us ? We are having a bite of lunch at the pub (a sweetener on the Landlord to hold on the food until we are all there

Some are going into Henley for the afternoon and Tea

Good to know, thanks.
Though I think feeding is cheating.
It clashes with Goodwood Festival of Speed.
But now I know, I may go there one weekend and give the 100-300 a workout.
