Awesome shot as always; not sure if normal red kites have those white eyes too, but it sure adds to the whole here! :D Still the same animal as appeared on your other photos or did you see two leucistic ones? :)

Oh my life :faint: Is it normal for Red kites to be leucistic? (I mean, it's never normal but some species have it more often that other, Common dolphins or Rock pigeons for example). All at three different places I hope?

Remind me a Japanese girl, who (firstly) makes illusion of being levitating in her self-portrait photos! [link]

Leucism (occasionally spelled leukism) is a general term for the phenotype resulting from defects in pigment cell differentiation and/or migration from the neural crest to skin, hair or feathers during development. This results in either the entire surface (if all pigment cells fail to develop) or patches of body surface (if only a subset are defective) having a lack of cells capable of making pigment. :)

Oh thank you I wasn't aware of leucism that makes this bird even more incredible.
