Aberdeen Red Kites (ARK) is a three year project to reintroduce kites to Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. 30 birds were released in 2007, 35 in 2008 and another 30-35 in 2009. Many of the birds have been named by schools and local business. The aim of the project is to establish a breeding population in one of the largest remaining gaps for red kites in Britain.
This weekend has been a bit of an uncomfortable one for our red kite female and mum, Fairview. With the frequent showers she has been sheltering her chicks as they are still too small to be waterproof themselves. They don't seem to be appreciating this though and could be seen wriggling underneath - not very comfy for mum! Despite the wind and rain of the weekend, both parents brought in lots of food (almost entirely small rabbits) and the chicks were well fed.
The CCTV can be seen at VSA Easter Anguston, Peterculter and from Monday we will be at Union Square in the centre of Aberdeen for a week with footage.
How do I access the cctv or camera?
