Spotted a kite

I’ve just spotted a Red Kite soaring in the sky here in Garstang, Lancashire. I saw a couple last year but hadn’t seen them since so thought they had maybe just veered off course from where they came.

  • That's good to read. When I go up there several times of the year, I don't see any raptors, corvids or anything that is a threat to the local red grouse. I see lots of red grouse. I am a cynic.
  • In our area Red Kite numbers have increased in the last 18 months or so, surprisingly in some cases even near to Grouse moors maybe things are improving slowly.
