Driving up to Birdfair on Thursday afternoon, while going round the M25, I spotted a Red Kite just before the junction onto the M1.
I know you can easily see them on the M40, so this isn't too far away from there but still nice to see.
While I didn't get to see the Osprey at Rutland Water, I did get to see another Red Kite while having breakfast on Sunday morning. It flew low over the field next to the B&B where we were staying and had us all dashing to the windows for a better look.
You can vote for the red kite and up to six as part of the Vote National Bird Campaign.
