how common are red kites in ne wales? (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Just wondering if anyone can give any pointers on how common they are in NE Wales, as I saw my first one in the area today?

I remember before all the Introductory programmes we had here to increase their numbers
The first red kites i saw were in 1976 in borth and lampeter in wales if you asked me then how rare they were or how common they were I would have no problem with telling yer they were very rare but now i would think that they are makeing a comeback where you mentioned in wales so not so much rare anymore just hope folk can leave them in peace there not getting that in the highlands of scotland being badly persecuted there at present.
