Our trips – 5 – Red kites

A spectacular bird of prey, with a wingspan of close to 2 metres.  Red kites came close to extinction in the UK, and were re-introduced from Scandinavia.

We visit a red kite feeding station, which supports and monitors the birds.  There are often 30 or more birds, swooping for food.  They can be very vocal too.  This trip includes a talk about red kites and their preservation.  http://www.argatyredkites.co.uk

We often see red kites when walking near Crieff.  Especially in the autumn and winter.
