Like tarmacjohn i did not see or find any on Bredon hill today but did see a pair of red Kites. 8)
Ok, deviating from the painted rocks, but.. Red Kits, one of my favourite birds of prey. First time I ever saw one was walking up in the Chilterns, some time before I learnt about Geocaching. A rare site then. But in the last couple of years I have spotted a couple over Chedworth. Earlier this year I saw quite a number near High Wycombe, and this past summer there were a couple flying over Chesterton Farm south of my home town Cirencester  :) I look forward to seeing more of them whilst out and about in coming years.

Why my favourite? I think it is just their distinctive shape, colouring, and size. They have such an awesome presence when circling above you. I won't paint a rock depicting them (I technically failed art at school), but my daughter may have a go at one  :)
