Red Kite - Harland Edge, Beeley Moor

A Red Kite flew over me at around 09:15 this morning as I was walking down the Cathole. It came from the Chesterfield direction and followed Harland Edge before gaining height over Bunkers Hill Wood before being lost to view. 
Not entirely sure on its age but I think second calendar year with the pale tips to the greater underwing coverts and the state of moult, having already lost 4 inner primaries on each wing.
