Good luck with the Kites. I stopped at Stokenchurch on the M40 last year and there were many flying, but the lighting was aweful so no photos to write home about.

Excellent camera BTW - I got my 5DIII back in August and am really impressed with it.


I live just a few miles from there. It is great to see the kites but a few have been hit by cars with the café being so close to the road. Also worry about the diet they are getting there.

Another decent spot to see them not far from Stokenchurch is here on the map -!data=!1m4!1m3!1d782!2d-0.8438326!3d51.668774!2m1!1e3&fid=7

It is a children's playground but the houses over the road tend to put food out for the kites so if you sit in the playground on a good sunny afternoon you will get buzzed by them many times. A great little walk for afterwards with the camera, there is a footpath running down the side of those tennis courts then past the side of the cricket pitch into those woods. It is a steep climb down many steps to bottom lane. In the spring the fields down there are often filled with poppies and the woods full of birds. The climb back up is quite steep but well worth the effort.
