Snapper Kenneth O’Keefe, 62, captured the footage as kites were fed pieces of chicken on a farm.

The father of two said: “I knew Dumfries and Galloway are a stronghold for kites in the wild and it was my plan to take pictures of them – I had never seen them before.

“The royal kites congregate over a hundred at the Bellymack Hill farm; every day the owner throws pieces of chicken in a field and on a table and the sighting is quite close.

“The birds regularly jostle each other in the air and when I saw my photo of the two flying in close formation it immediately reminded me of the Red Arrows.

“I love the photos because birds of prey are among my favorite to photograph and I had never seen one before as they are only found in limited areas of Britain.

“At one time they were gone in Scotland and had to be reintroduced.

“Fortunately, now they are becoming well established – so much so that their labeling has been discontinued. “
