RED KITE double score

Cracking surprise this morning on the Italian Karst, while I was having a chat with a friend. We looked up and saw 2 RED KITES soaring low above our heads. Seen on naked eye only for some seconds, before they drifted past, blown by the SW wind and under a light rain.
I had a similar encounter of this species back in 2008 when a wind-blown Red Kite flew past my house.
Pity we had no good views, but still a very exciting find. Red Kites are annual rarities to north-eastern Italy and Slovenia.
