Stephen Harvey of Jex Farm B&B and Holiday Barns in Little Snoring near Fakenham stumbled upon the altercation on Tuesday, June 13 and had his trusty camera to hand.

Mr Harvey said: “We have some owls nesting at the barns and I had actually headed out to take a photo of one of the little owls as they were sat on a post.

“I heard some commotion above me and when I looked up I saw the red kite and kestrel having a fight in mid-air. I was treated to that display which was amazing.”

Mr Harvey said he had seen an increase in red kites this year.
