Red kites galore!

Red kites poured in today so dare I say that we are back to normal? Well, maybe, although Sunday is forecast to be a dry day, Monday is scheduled to be very wet so I'll hold off from any cheering for the time being.

The occupants of the rehabilitation aviaries took quite a battering from the weather in the morning so the netting that was taken down yesterday has been put back up as it gives the birds shelter from the wind and rain when they perch behind it.

Apart from one very heavy shower this morning we had a dry afternoon with light rain coming back towards 4pm so every one at the farm saw lots of birds up close.

  1. Hi Chris,
    I came across your blog whilst looking up info on redkite tags for yorkshire red kites - then coincidentally you were on the tv last night too - that was a bit freaky!
    Great piece for Country wise - thanks so much for all the work you've done with the Red Kites over the years.
    We see them over my parents house in Yorkshire everyday - they're the most beautiful birds.
    Thanks again, siobhan
