Winter Feeding by Ivan Ellison - See The Gallery for more wonderful images
With the weather being so poor, it’s hard to believe that spring is just around the corner and as the days lengthen, all birds move into the breeding season.
Red Kites are no exception and the communal winter roosts are breaking up with fewer and fewer birds joining up late afternoon to roost. Instead they’re going back ‘on territory’ so if you see a pair of kites spending a lot of time in one place on a regular basis, particularly over woodland, then please do contact us and let us know the location. This enables us to map the population spread of the birds and helps us to find new breeding sites.
Many thanks, from those of us at Yorkshire Red Kites.
