Hi Peter, The Red Kite arrived today and WOW !! Its fantastic, I have spoken to the artist today to congratulated him on his work. Its in place in our garden and my family are soooooo thrilled with it, he certainly is a clever guy and very talented. I know we will get many more positive comments throughout the summer and can only say a very big thank you for the opportunity to own something that we would not think of having. Thanks once again X,
