Yorkshire Red Kites2

Summer

Late spring/early summer is possibly the quietest time for seeing red kites as they are busy raising any young. Once both the adults and young are ‘fed up’ there is generally very little activity of birds out on the wing.

Homepage quotes

"When the kyte builds, look to lesser linen"
From Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale

"Ah, could I see a spinney nigh,
A paddock riding in the sky,
Above the oaks, in easy sail,
On stilly wings and forked tail."
Paddock is an old English name for the Red Kite
By John Clare (c1820)
