These birds of prey differ significantly in what they eat and where they hunt for their food. The Ospreys hunt over water, whereas Red Kites hunt over land. In the UK, Red Kites are common over the Chilterns and can also be seen in concentration in places such as Wales. Ospreys are often seen in locations such as Rutland Waters.

Some images are available for sale on my website.
