Often seen over the farm with buzzards, kestrels and sparowhawks
No interactions present.
today I watched one of these birds circling low over the farm as usual. A small Great Tit-sized bird flew up from the hedge, apparently to mob it. The Kite twisted suddenly and appeared to grapple. The small bird disappeared, and the Kite continued its circular flight holding something in its claw, which it proceeded to pluck, sending clouds of feathers cascading into the air. Amazing.
