I Think That These Really Are Red Kites

For many years, I haven't quite grasped the difference between Red Kites and Buzzards. It is the same for Rooks and Crows - though someone once said that if you see lots of crows then they are rooks; or if you see a single rook then it is a crow. Or is it the other way round?
The Red Kite dilemma hasn't been helped by the absence of the bird from the Cotswold area for most of my life. Until last year, when I think I saw just the one. And now this year, I think I have seen four so far.
Probably good news for the Cotswold Red Kite population, which does appear to be on the increase.
