Raptors

Just wondering if anyone has suffered from raptor attacks on their kites.

During recent fieldwork I had my kite attacked on at least 4 occasions. Thankfully without any damage to the vulture, hawk and eagle or my kite. Not sure how one can mitigate against this, but it certainly was a bit worrying at the time.

  • Birds are always interesting. I have had a few swoop on my kite and KAP rig. I have small birds land and sit on the kite line. Search this site for examples of bird attacks including interesting photos.

    I admit it. When it comes to animals {and pets}, I am a "wuss". My response to what WW wrote would be:

    "Awwww...."
