Bird was as high as a kite

On Friday July 26 I was driving towards Cleckheaton on the Dewsbury Road near the swimming baths when I saw a red kite gliding from the Gomersal side towards Hightown.

As I was driving at the time I was unable to stop to take a picture.

Is there a new colony of the bird in the district?

There is no doubt that it was a red kite, as having worked at Harewood House I am aware of the appearance and flight patterns of the bird.

Are there any local ornithologists who may have some observations of the bird.
