Have you seen a red kite?

9 May 2013

The RSPB is asking people in the south Down area to report suspected breeding of red kites. The Northern Ireland Red Kite Reintroduction Project saw 80 red kite chicks released in Castlewellan Forest between 2008 and 2010, and in 2010 the first red kite chicks to be born here in over 200 years took to the skies. Currently, it is estimated that in 2012 there were only 13 breeding pairs of red kites in Northern Ireland.
