    Given that red kites typically are fed by throwing food into the air, you'd need to be quite finely diced before being scattered.
    My thoughts on red kites originated a few weeks ago when I was out walking with some friends. We went past the new cemetery being built on the edge of Loughborough, and one of them said that he didn't think it was a good use of valuable land. I thought about the Tibetan sky burials, and said that it was a pity we don't have vultures in this country. Someone else pointed out that we do have red kites, which perform a similar function.

    In future, every time I pass a "Red Kite feeding centre" I shall be wondering if it is anyone I know that is on the menu today?

    There are a ridiculous amount of red kites in and around High Wycombe. I visit a supplier there on a regular basis. Happy to lob a few bits out of the office window if it helps anyone on their way..

    Yes, arrest the whole of Birmingham.

    I think I meant to write "Birmingham man...", but perhaps you're right - arrest them all.

    I'm feeling old and broken so I thought I'd pop in to the lounge for a fun time and some cheerful conversation to find talking about burials and chopping people....

    Yes, but we are talking about it very cheerfully.

    If anyone finds my race face kicking about anywhere, send it to my training thread please. Don't bother checking the beard oil cupboard, it definitely won't be in there, and someone check Darren Fishwick's pockets.
