South Downs Red Kites
We’ve had some great views of the Red Kites in the last few weeks. They’re around most days, with anything from 1 to 3 birds at a time. This picture was taken on Sunday morning as the kite soared over the house and garden. How lucky are we?
The photo below is an interesting shot of a Red Kite which I took a couple of months ago. This bird was sitting in a tree some distance from me, so apologies for the poor quality and lack of focus — not one of my best photographs I’m afraid! Of interest is the green tag on this Red Kite’s wing. If you look carefully it has a Letter D printed on the tag. I guess this bird is part of the South Downs Red Kite release programme, so presumably it has some history…
Does anyone know anything more about Red Kite Green Wing Tag Letter D??? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org… Would love to know more.
