All the years ive been interested in birds, never saw a Red Kite, neither had my dad who's even more interested than i am.
After their introduction to the Rockingham area some years ago, they've slowly spread out further and further...and today, there's one circling above my urban estate on the edge of Peterborough. Maybe 50ft up, not a bit bothered by people, traffic etc.
On my rides toward Corby/Rockingham i see them all the time, sometimes 6 in one ride....but to see them this far is a really good sign they're doing well.
Just thought i'd share that....
