Where in the world are we?

The Safari has ventured out of Safariland and are now ensconced in a very foreign country. One with a giant horse scratched into the hillside.
On route along motorways then A roads we counted just two Kestrels and one Buzzard which was almost at our destination. Before the Buzzard we'd spotted a raptor from the driving seat and shouted Buzzard but Wifey had a better view of it and exclaimed "'Kite' I can see its forked tail!". With all the sunshine early on in our journey it's strange that we saw a Red Kite before any Buzzards.Sadly dead Barn Owls on the side of our local motorway equaled the number of Kestrels.
At our digs we've not explored much but have seen a few House Sparrows, a couple of Blackbirds, a Blue Tit and a pair of Mute Swans on the farm pond. 
We'll sneak out with Frank later and set up the stealth-cam somewhere near the pond and see what's sneaking around in the dark.
Where to next? If only we knew - we've never been to this part of the world before.
In the meantime let us know what was seen in the wrong order in your outback.

Compared with some other white horses, this one looks very solid and static.

A couple of years ago I came across a couple of red kites sitting on the air and was able to look up at the wonderful patterns on the underside of their wings.
